Dark Soul: The Complete Collection

Dark Soul: The Complete Collection - Aleksandr Voinov 3.5 Stars
Wow. This is definitely not warm and fuzzy but at times quite dark and disturbing. You have the complex relationship of Stefano and Silvio - their push/pull that is full of tenderness and yearning but also of dominance and pain. You see the many sides of Silvio that make up his "dark soul" that can evoke sympathy, disgust, admiration, shock - and there are definitely some uncomfortable themes here. It's about taboo desires in all forms and the repercussions of giving into them. But not all is lost - sacrifices are made but the reward/ending was perfect.
