The Picture of Dorian Gray ★★★★½

Wow haven’t seen this in years & while the spooky factor is no longer there (I remember specifically at one point I had a good jump scare during this & it genuinely creeped me out overall) the story and it’s reflection on human nature is still fantastic, still totally love this film... I love the witty dialogue & it’s a a gorgeous meticulous looking film..the characters are all a bunch of major assholes for the most part, smug, greedy, vain, cruel & things were so uptight about sex and drugs as there only merely hinted at.... My only wish is that the voice over would’ve been his inner monoglue instead of a narrator.. it also nicely covers the downward spiral of a man and manipulation.. I have a feeling a major bonus for my love of this when I first saw it also came from the bar scene towards The ends which features  sonata #5 , it’s practically becomes a gothic classical music video scene .. one of the few classical pieces I really like ..  I bet I haven’t seen this in 20 years which adds a fun irony to the whole thing if you the story ...
