Naama: So Emo

(no subject)

I saw this version of The Picture of Dorian Gray yesterday, and it was painful. I was squirming in my seat all through it, feeling embarrassed for the makers. I didn't know it was possible to spout off Wilde's text without any depth at all. And then we have the director, on the IMDB boards defending his decision to turn Basil into a woman. To a woman named Basil. Wtf, mate? Sorry, I'm not convinced.

But the afterword of 'this book used to be so omg edgy that it took Wilde to imprisonment' was made hilarious by the fact that the movie lacked any edge whatsoever. Kudos, man. You've got real talent in managing that.

Kinsey, on the other hand, was brilliant. So many great actors. And damn the kid playing young Kinsey looked like Liam.
