The films of Nicolas Roeg are so influential and controversial that I am surprised at how little I knew about them before seeing "Dorian's Folly." As a fellow graphic novelist, I have to wonder how much of this is based on Roeg's own work. The first films to deal with the idea of identity are the 1964 British film "Mansfield Park," in which the story is about the life of an English country gentleman, and "The Summer of Sam" which was also a British film. It was based on the famous novel by E.M. Forster, but it is quite different in style. It deals with the life of a family in London. While the family are all together, there is an issue that is never mentioned, so we can never know what kind of family they are. Also, the film is shot in black and white, so you never know what the camera is focusing on. I found that the camera was almost always in the background. There are some interesting things about this film. The performances are all terrific, especially from an amazing Jean-Claude Van Damme as the ruthless police inspector, played by Michael Fairman. As he appears to be a literal bloodhound, Van Damme is incredibly frightening as the character. I really enjoyed the cinematography of the film, especially the use of color, and how the camera angles mimic the way we see a sun coming through a cloud, or the way we see the mountains in the distance. Also, the film is quite violent, so it is very well-acted. It also shows that there is something wrong with the state of the world in 1964, and that a woman can have a child by a man. The supporting cast is great, too. The story is a little confusing, but it is not completely nonsensical. There is one plot point that is not explained, so it is not completely clear what happened. There is also a philosophical message about life, which is touched on briefly. One of the strengths of this film is its lack of special effects. Unlike some of Roeg's other films, "Dorian's Folly" doesn't have special effects in it. It is a very minimalist film, almost like a book, which gives it a more lyrical quality. The music is also very striking and adds to the mood of the film. The soundtrack is unique, and that alone is a positive. I think this is a great film. I really enjoyed it.
