Dorian Gray DVD Review!

 

Dorian Gray is a fascinating movie based upon the Oscar Wilde novel “The Picture of Dorian Gray“. It’s a horror movie that basically states that appearances can be deceiving and that one should not judge a book by it’s cover. The character of Dorian is complex, yet simple at the same time. Going from handsome and genuine to handsome and corrupt with a dark lining underneath the surface that begins to show with time. After a long time Dorian begins to understand what he has become, what he has lost in pursuit of the shallow, meaningless existence that comes with materialistic aspirations and pleasures of the flesh. There is the torn aspect between love and lust. Basically a lot of subjects…..mirror themselves with the one image being twisted from the original. Which is real? Usually this was not my type of film but it won me over big-time. Just be prepares as it is a Gothic Horror set in the late 1800’s so those of you who don’t like period pieces (I didn’t but I still loved this) be forewarned. Also a bit of nudity and sex on-screen. Not for kids.
