A day or so ago Indiewire‘s Anne Thompson talked about the difference between “artsy” and “art film.” I immediately thought of the last dialogue scene in Stanley Kubrick‘s Lolita when she did. When it was released the term “art movie” had a more or less specific meaning, depending on the mentality and education level of the person you were speaking to. It happens at 2:59 but go back to 2:40 for the full flavor.
