Other features

Lackluster DVD with a decent black-and-white, cropped (as it should be) transfer. But it includes no extras. And there are so many possibilities here! Lolita is more than a great film -- the making of it was also a great story that could easily have been told in notes or as a simple documentary on the disc.
