Happy 2021, all! Here's our first episode of the bright new year, featuring Filmsuck's new co-host, Dolores McElroy! We're talking about Oscar Wilde as wit, socialist, decadent, and aesthete, whose ideas about the fabulous lives that belong to the people by right and the importance of embracing the fantastical in art can readily be applied to the mass art of film. Part of the suckage of cinema in our time can be traced to the societal embrace of realism and moralism in art, both tendencies opposed by Wilde. We focus on the eerie and opulent black-and-white 1945 MGM adaptation of Wilde's only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, as our favorite of the many Wilde adaptations--you know, the one with the great, gruesome Ivan Albright painting shown in Technicolor? Take a listen.
