    I totally agree with u here. I watched it with my mom and in several moments she thought we were watching real footage from Marilyn and I had to keep saying it was all Ana. Their similarity is uncanny.

    Darling, Blonde is the last thing you should watch with your parents lol.

    If you struggled with Spencer, you’re going to have a tougher time with this one. It’s much more inaccessible. I managed to watch it in one go but I guess it depends on you idk. If you find it a bit difficult to sit through, then watch it in parts, to let everything sink in.

    Thanks for the advice.

    P.S.: I LOVED Spencer and Claire Mathon & Johnny Greenwood were robbed last year.

    I loved some of it and hated the rest. Such a hard movie to define. The cinematography was amazing, truly some things I have never seen before but the major flaw for me was the screenplay. It had very little structure so I was constantly being taken out of the moment. That works for me to some degree, but it was relentless in this. The dialogue made me cringe at times too.

    Ana de Armas was good, I may be alone here, but I felt at times she overacted. She looked incredible and nailed some scenes, esp the more intense ones, but it become one note. Which I think was the director/screenplay’s fault untimely.

    If the narrative had been given time to breathe and build I think this would have been a masterpiece. Unfortunately, it disappointed me.

    I haven’t seen it, and given my fucked up taste for movies I’ll probably like it a lot, but that’s a really funny thing, lol

    I think the movie was pretty good, but I’m never watching this film again. It’s just too depressing. I understand why some people are calling it “torture porn” because man, is it brutal.

    This honestly felt boring. Although I find the textual interaction of the film adaptation, the source material, and the bisected persona of Marilyn/Norma quite interesting as to how they interrogate the notion of a woman’s agency in terms of narrative ownership: at which point does Norma end and Marilyn begin? And at which point does the focalization of the [female] author’s voice overlap with the [male] director’s visual language, and does the latter override the former?

    Regardless, I loathe the filmic treatment of “double persecution,” where a marginalized character is marginalized visually just for the sake of exposing said marginalization–and as such, contributes even more to the process of marginalization.

    I think it was interesting to watch.  I had an impression that Marylin was just like the silly characters she played but having either depression or mental break down all the time. That’s what was most disturbing to watch – I had an impression that it was a 12-year-old in a body of a woman being used and raped. Ana played it very well, but I don’t think that who Marylin really was.

    Asking for a suggestion: If it’s actually as tough of a watch as you all are saying, should I watch it in one go or by parts to process the film? Also judging by the reactions, this film can be taken as a companion piece to Spencer?

    No. Spencer didn’t have several sex scenes. I still think this movie is very similar to the cult movie Showgirls directed by Paul Verhoeven

    This movie was a tough watch for me, but I couldn’t take my eyes off Ana DeArmas. I think that she has a chance come awards’ time because she’s playing Marilyn Monroe and she’s doing it so well. There were times that I was convinced that it was real footage of her.

    What “Blonde” is trying to do, walk that thin line between denouncing exploitation of MM as an object of sexual desire and actually contributing to it is really difficult to achieve. I don’t think that Andrew Dominik fully succeeded in doing this. The movie is esthetically beautiful, almost impeccable but it’s brutal from the first scene to the last.

    I feel like the sex scenes could of been limited, feel like the first rape scene could of been handled better and i def dont think the bj scene needed to be included..maybe just insinuated.

    This movie could of been SO MUCH BETTER

    A little bit of Magic never hurt anybody.

    I agree. It was too weird/dark/depressing/creepy seeing Ana De Armas acting like a 12 years old. Maybe this movie needed an actress a little younger as Marilyn Monroe: Florence Pugh for example

    Or Sydney Sweeney. But Ana De Armas seemed too mature for this creepy role. It was too weird/dark/creepy/depressing seeing Ana De Armas acting as a 12 years old in a woman body who misses/wants her biological father. Huge Daddy Issues
