Vladimir Nabokov: Life and Lolita - BBC Documentary

Vladimir Nabokov is one of my favorite writers of all time, but some of his works, espeically Lolita, remains one of the most controversial titles ever penned. I hope this documentary will help people to understand this great Russian writer better. Documentary following writer and oadcaster Stephen Smith on the trail of Vladimir Nabokov, the elusive man behind the controversial novel and 1962 film, Lolita. The journey takes him from the shores of Lake Geneva to Nabokov's childhood haunts in the Russian countryside south of St Petersburg to the streets of New York City and a road trip through the anonymous world of small town America. Along the way Smith meets fellow Nabokov admirer Martin Amis and puts in a cheeky visit to Playboy's literary editor who is publishing an extract of Nabokov's last work.
