Cause everyone else just might get it.
I JUST SAW DORIAN GRAY.
No words. No thoughts. Nothing. I’m still in post-traumatic-awe.
Listen to the incredible credit music! This ought to clue you in to the true amount of mad-magnificence present in Dorian Gray! Best by far are Rebecca Hall & Colin Firth, who play Emily Wotton & Lord Henry Wotton respectively. They pwn. Ben Barnes does a suprisingly credible job at Dorian, though not quite as believable as I had hoped. Special effects are unnecessarily bad. Costumes mediocre. Music AMAZING. Acting quite good for the most part. Rachel Hurd-Wood fit like a glove for Sibyl Vane. Ben Barnes could have worn that wide brim hat a little less. Not too crazy about the obvious sexual scenes – it could have just as well been implied. Also the end is a little different from the book. Ah well. Still a delicious film!
