long & bizarre
3 January 2006 | by chinpengSee all my reviews

Dorian Gray becomes a tool of an international conspiracy. The plot is pretty wild and there's no point in trying to explain it because it's secondary to the value of this film. It's mainly about photography, set designs, and costumes. The film is basically eye candy. It succeeds to entertain if you can actually sit through the whole thing. Great visuals. Some scenes drag a little bit. Imagine John Waters and Matthew Barney collaborating on a James Bond film. There is no consistent aesthetic here, it's just kind of random. Something good for when you're in a strange mood or don't feel like seeing something predictable.
