Finally got to see the modern version of Dorian Gray last night. And I have to say, I preferred the old version made in 1945. The new version is pretty good in terms of staging, but its also disappointing.
The most disappointing part of the film, is in fact the revealing of the painting. Through out the film a series of gruesome things erupt from the image, maggots, blood etc. However when it is reveal there's nothing disgusting about it. I thought the one in the 1845 version was much more gruesome and made me jump even. I just frowned and yawned when it came t revealing the painting in this version.
