Dr. Strangelove, Lolita, Henry Fool  MAR 29 1999

Dr. Strangelove is a nifty movie. I hadn't seen too many of Kubrick's films, so I decided I needed to see what I was missing. I wish they made movies like this nowadays. A movie doesn't have to have David Spade or Adam Sandler in it to be funny.

Lolitais another of Kubrick's films...I didn't like it too much. It wasn't that the whole pedophilia thing bothered me...the movie just wasn't that compelling or interesting.

I just couldn't get into Henry Fool. The movie began and then didn't take me anywhere for an hour and 45 minutes. At the end, they stuck in some incest, rape, murder, and a Nobel Prize. Too little, too late.
