Recommend: Fangoria DORIAN GRAY Review

Sometimes we see a bit of writing on the ‘net.  We don’t want to argue with it.  We just point our big finger at it and say, this is something you should read.  So it is with Bekah McKendry’s review on the Fangoria site of the recent adaptation of Dorian Gray.

Here’s a brief sample:

THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY, which the notorious Wilde wrote in 1890, was often said to be a literary representation of Wilde’s own life—a struggle between beauty and reality, between influence and self-choice, between morals and sins. The book was repeatedly banned, chopped and otherwise censored because of its copious sex, drugs, debauchery and homoerotic overtones (it is Wilde, after all). Though other filmic versions of this book have been undertaken in past, this one is a solid translation with surprisingly few variations from the original story.

Nice stuff, huh?  For the rest click here.
