Nabokov on Kafka: The Metamorphosis (VHS)

Monterey Media actually sent me a review copy of this after I launched the first version of this site. I seem to remember it was pretty decent, though a bit dry. But it does star Christopher Plummer (AKA Captain von Trapp from "The Sound of Music") as Vladimir Nabokov, and that made me happy.
