I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human.

"How sad it is! I shall grow old, and horrid, and dreadful. But this picture will remain always young. It will never be older than this particular day of June. . . . If it was only the other way! If it was I who were to be always young, and the picture that were to grow old! For this--for this--I would give everything! Yes, there is nothing in the whole world I would not give!"
-The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde.

Nice photos..
The film's coming out soon isn't it? If it's not out already...though judging by the trailer they seem to have decided on exploring the gothic rather than the psychological element which upsets me ever so slightly.

Oh it was the most awful film...I could feel Wilde writhing with pain in his grave.
