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.
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 exampleOctober 1, 2022 at 1:45 pm #1205104321

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 IssuesOctober 1, 2022 at 2:26 pm #1205104333
I feel badly for everyone involved.

Can someone explain why her mole moves from her cheek to her chin?

well at the time of their casting, watts and chastain were older than armas is now. so i don’t think going with a 20something was in their minds.October 2, 2022 at 4:58 pm #1205105200This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.October 3, 2022 at 2:07 am #1205105441

MM died at 36 years old. But this movie make a huge thing about Her Daddy Issues. It was too creepy/weird seeing a woman in her 30s with Huge Daddy Issues. Maybe it will worked if the actress was youngerOctober 3, 2022 at 12:53 pm #1205105898
We watched this Friday, there’s just a lot going on and it wasn’t my top priority to review this. Blonde has a few things to admire. I quite enjoyed the cinematography and score here, it’s my two favorites of this nearly unbearable film. I don’t know much about Marilyn Monroe outside of what your general person would know about her. I did not read the novel, and personally, her story isn’t one that I particularly care about or need to see being retold. This was truly one of the worst films I’ve seen this year. It’s painfully slow, and I mean painfully. A 3 hour film took us nearly 6 hours to watch. Thank God this is on Netflix and the viewer has the option to stop watching it and can come back later. I couldn’t imagine seeing this in theaters and not being able to take a break! Ana De Armas was fine, but it was a creepy disturbing role without a doubt, and not a fun one. She played a little frightened girl trapped in a woman’s body for nearly the entire time. It’s sad to watch. She’s constantly searching for her father throughout the film, and will pretend he’s there in some form, some fashion by any means necessary. The Daddy Issues took me completely out of this. She literally calls every man she encounters sexually Daddy and there’s a few scenes that seem borderline pornish, well, more than a few. It’s super unsettling and creepy regarding her Daddy issues throughout the film and can really make one squeamish. If this really was how tormented Marilyn was in real life, it’s truly sad and disturbing. No one is talking about how boring this film is overall and instead focusing on the outlandish acts of the film, and even those moments can’t keep the audience interested. I’d literally rather watch paint dry than rewatch this film. Absolute waste of time and waste of your energy. You could spend 3 hours watching something of substance and quality instead! Hard NO on recommending this to anyone.
I agree. But the movie it’s so extreme it could be a cult film in the futureNot now
