Blunt Reviews Presents: Dorian Gray (2009)


Putride is not a strong enough word to describe this film. It takes one of the greatest novels ever written, kills it and then pisses on the tombstone. It ignores the interesting content and themes to focus on wealth and indulgence in the most appalling manner. It takes a story that questions love, beauty, age, wisdom and humanity, strips it down to a hallow shell and pumps it full of cliches, unnecessary orgies and a sequence of oral sex between Basil and Dorian that’s beyond felonious. No redeeming features, a total omnishambles and an unforgivable film.
