Oscar Wilde’s witty, slyly autobiographical and masterfully profound novel superbly translated to the big screen.
The once angelic and aristocratic Dorian is tempted into a hedonistic life of depravity and dissolution. Yet, though the decades advance, his face retains the eerie perfection captured in his faustian portrait.
Filmed in lustrous B+W (with shocking moments of Technicolor), this is rightly considered the definitive telling of Wilde’s classic novel.
