Rarely does a film make me wish I had paid more attention in high school. I read Oscar Wilde’s THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY in 10th grade—well, kind of read it. As memory serves, I skimmed it and relied heavily on CliffsNotes for quizzes. However, upon first viewing this latest screen adaptation (on DVD and Blu-ray from E1 Entertainment), I was compelled to get a copy of the book and read it once again, this time paying attention. I then watched DORIAN GRAY (yeah, the filmmakers dropped “the picture”) a second time, feeling far more informed. But not only did the film influence me to revisit the source material, it stands up on its own as a fine movie.
