More reviews, etc (fwd)

There was a glowing review of the movie yesterday in the NYT and the
opposite of that on NPR. In today's NYT, there is a curious piece by Sarah
Boxer (in the "Think Tank" section, A15) -- "'Lolita' Turns 40, Still
Arguing for a Right to Exist." It ends with the famous and yet
still delightful quote from Groucho Marx at the time the book came out: "I
am going to put off reading 'Lolita' for six years, till she's 18."
