Double Feature | Year 12 (2020)
The art life. The horror of what you don’t see and indirectly hurting others through art. Berberian Sound Studio is the best horror film no one has been yelling at you to watch. Making the viewer uncomfortable without showing the horror. Can horror drive its viewer mad? Elevating an actor from supporting to lead to create more compelling art. Dorian Grey makes a return to Double Feature with Albert Lewin’s 1945 adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Grey. Being able to be kind of a dick, but witty enough that everyone still loves you. Oscar Wilde’s characters as versions of himself, and that’s okay. The horror of making someone else suffer the consequences of your lifestyle.

Posing for a portrait, Dorian Gray talks with Lord Henry Wotton, who says that men should pursue their sensual longings, but laments that only the young get to do so. Taken with the idea, Dorian imagines a scenario in which the painting will age as he stays youthful. His wish comes true, and his boyish looks aid him as he indulges his every whim. But when a stunning revelation forces him to see what he's become, Dorian faces some very dangerous questions.
