Kohl argues that “Dorian’s fatal error is to take Lord Henry’s theories as practical guides for life” (156). In “wild desire to know everything about life” (Wilde 44) Dorian destroys destinies of people, corrupting them with his thirst of pleasures. Friendship with him is pernicious for people around: Alan Campbell commits a suicide; Adrian Singleton conducts a pathetic life of the addict, having slid on the bottom; the reputation of the cousin of Lord Henry, Lady Gwendolyn is forever discredited—even her children are not allowed to live with her in one house. Liebmann emphasizes that among the major characters only the Mephistophelean Henry survives, and all others—Sybil, Basil, James Vane, Sir Henry Ashton, Lord Kent’s son and aforementioned characters are the victims of Dorian’s influence (451-452).

While the movie shows them dating. The problem with showing the viewer that Chris is this wonderful person all the time is that it’s fake. Showing the character’s his faults makes him more relatable. On top of that Chris is very intriguing on his outlooks of the life he lives adding a sort of mysterious enigma to his character. “Some readers admired the boy immensely for his courage and noble ideals; other fulminated that he was a reckless idiot, a wacko, a narcissist who perished out of arrogance and stupidity—and was undeserving of the considerable media attention he received” (Krakauer – Author’s Note).
Humans often love the idea of crime and adventure, but live to mundane of lives to actually experience these thrills. People almost get emotionally involved in the lives of these anti-hero character just for the buzz and pleasure of the dangerous endeavors the characters associate with. For example, Walter White from “Breaking Bad” breaks free from his boring and average life to become the most feared and threatening drug lord of all.
