Martin Amis Toasts Roman Polanski's Macbeth

"You know you’re going to see something good when people call a movie tasteless."

And have you seen the Adrian Lyne version of Lolita?

Yes I have. I thought that had some very good things in it — just how sad the story was, that was well brought out early on. What an awful situation. But I thought Jeremy Irons wasn’t saturnine enough. He makes the terrible mistake of grinning at Lolita. It’s disastrous. Humbert grinning? A toothy smile of adoration? No! Everything’s got to be contorted and from within. James Mason, I thought, was brilliant.
