As it happens, unrelated to the above two posts which i only just read, I watched this documentary last week & have contacted the writer/filmmaker to discuss it. Perhaps some correspondences.



The rest are at YT.

This episode of particular interest to me:

The author of Solving Nabokov's Lolita Riddle says this at the one minute mark in part one of the documentary: "Contrary to what many people might think, Nabokov imbued his art with a covert child protection agenda that has yet to be recognized."

Did I hear her correctly? %%^9

Err, umm, I have a few things to say about some things that were brought up in the documentary but first I want to make sure that I heard that correctly. If that is what she said, I guess that statement would be the general thesis of the whole book (and of that documentary based on the book), in which case, if that is the case, I wouldn't agree. It's an interesting angle, but I wouldn't go there.

It's not the thesis of the book; she claims VN attempted this but failed, self-sabotaged, and only helped to popularize the idea of the child-seductress.

Liam Neeson = pedo-apologist?

Quote:
The Good Mother (1988):

The movie stars Diane Keaton as Anna, a woman raising her young daughter by herself. She is divorced from her husband, who has moved to another city and remarried. Her rich grandparents offer her money for child care, but she wants to raise her daughter herself, even if it means taking a menial job as - literally - a bottle-washer. One day in the laundromat she meets an Irish sculptor named Leo (Liam Neeson), and they fall headlong into a passionate love affair. And one day she comes home to find her ex-husband (James Naughton), who announces he is taking custody of their daughter.

Why? We learn that little Molly spent the weekend with her daddy and described some of her recent experiences. We have already seen one of these events: Anna and Leo are making love in the middle of the night when Molly wanders into their bedroom. They stop immediately.

Molly climbs into bed and goes immediately to sleep. And then, according to later testimony, the two start making love again - “but while Molly was alseep.” Oddly, during the scene itself, it is not clear to us that they resume.

The second incident is more troubling. While Molly and Leo are home alone, Leo takes a shower. Molly, who has been reading a children’s picture book on reproduction, walks into the bathroom and innocently asks Leo if she can touch his penis. Aware of Anna’s belief in openness with her daughter, to give her no shame about nudity and sexuality, Leo permits her. These two incidents form the basis of a custody battle alleging that Anna cannot provide a proper home for her daughter.

If you understand how the ex-husband is handled in the movie, you can begin to understand why the movie goes so wrong. He is used only as an evil, vindictive plot device....




My mother also met Neeson once...
