Globe says Blonde streams at Netflix on Sept. 28

2022-09-23 07:42 ET - In the News

The Globe and Mail reports in its Friday, Sept. 23, edition that director Andrew Dominik's movie Blonde is an achingly beautiful, heartbreaking film. The Globe's Barry Hertz writes that Mr. Dominik also makes deliberately ugly, nasty ones. Blonde, the filmmaker's latest and infamously long-delayed production, is both. An extraordinarily cynical, meta-contextual epic tracing the rise and fall of Marilyn Monroe, Mr. Dominik's movie is a supremely uncomfortable and brutal look at America's most beautiful woman. Loosely adapting Joyce Carol Oates's 2000 novel -- which is less a straight biography of Monroe as a way for the author to use the actress as a heavy-duty metaphor for all of America's many cultural ills, a sort of Moby Dick in a rhinestone-covered dress. Life can be ugly when captured on camera. Blonde opens in select theatres on Sept. 23, streaming on Netflix starting Sept. 28. Famous Monroe moments that are burned into the collective culture's brain -- her dress billowing up during the subway-grate scene in The Seven Year Itch, her red-carpet appearance for the premiere of Some Like It Hot -- are refashioned here into a slow-moving horror show.
