This book offers critical studies of films that adapted works by Vladimir Nabokov. One of the most screened twentieth century authors (with over ten books adapted for cinema), his works are full of quirky and forbidden romance, and his writing is renowned for its cinematic qualities (e.g., frames, stage directions, and descriptions suggesting specific camera positions and movements). Films discussed include Lolita (both Kubrick’s 1962 and Lyne’s 1997 versions), Richardson’s Laughter in the Dark (1969), Skolimowski’s King, Queen, Knave (1972), Fassbinder’s Despair (1978), Foulon’s Mademoiselle O (1994), Kuik’s An Affair of Honor (1999), Gorris’ The Luzhin Defence (2000), and Rohmer’s The Triple Agent (2004). A final chapter discusses similarities between Nabokov and Jean-Luc Godard.
