See these film: The Trial + Lolita @ the Brattle

Lolita (1962)

The ongoing "Reunion Weekend" series at the Brattle Theatre might convince you that they really don't make them the way they used to. Fifty years ago, instead of lining up to see The Avengers, you could see films by two of the greatest directors of all time. Like Orson Welles's The Trial (1962; Monday, May 28 @ 1:30 + 7 pm), an adaptation of Franz Kafka's inscrutable black comedy about inescapable bureaucracy and persecution that might be one of the most brilliant uses of architecture - and Anthony Perkins - in a film. And Stanley Kubrick's tart, melancholy, and very funny adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov's naughty novel Lolita (1962; Monday, May 29 @ 4 pm + 9:30 pm), featuring James Mason and Peter Sellers at their sardonic best. The Brattle is at 40 Brattle Street, Cambridge | $7.75; $6.75 seniors; $12 double feature | 617.876.6837 or
