[VIDEO ESSAY] Although it is considered sacrilege in some circles to say it, Adrian Lyne's 1997 film version of Vladimir Nabokov's often banned 1954 novel is a vast improvement over Stanley Kubrick's beloved 1962 version.

Lyne's update on this comic, bittersweet tale benefits mightily from a clever screenplay by Stephen Schiff and terrific performances by the movie's two leads.

Unlike Kubrick's cool, black comedy, Lyne's LOLITA displays a much broader emotional tapestry

With its distant earnestness and leisurely pace, it might as well have been a Merchant Ivory production.
