    Arthouse films centering real life figures is my new favorite genre. Super excited for this film!

    I want see this even more now. Its sounding like Spencer on steroids.

    This is exactly how I’d describe the book. The NC-17 rating isn’t the least bit surprising considering the source material. The main challenges Dominik will have will be:
    a) tone – the nature of the book requires a lot of precision and balancing several themes simultaneously.
    b) pace – it’s a big book that covers A TON of subjects and time.
    c) Intention – The camera’s gaze will probably make or break a lot of it. You don’t want to paint Monroe as just a victim but rather get into the psyche of a woman that is absolutely destroyed by the Hollywood machine, while simultaneously giving her respect and not veering towards pure sadism. If not it’ll be too cruel to truly work.

    If Dominik nails all this, Blonde will easily be one of the best films of the year. Best case scenario though is either (once again) Spencer (acclaimed, if slightly divisive and not enough of the Academy’s cup of tea for it to get more than actress) or Titane (completely ignored by the Academy due to its nature but highly regarded by a great amount of people).

    The way this could be a disaster or a critic favorite.

    I’m getting major Spencer vibes from this project. The artsy biopic audiences will likely hate but critics will eat tf up. Ana de Armas is the right actress in the right role working with the right director. Watch her get nominated.

    Yeah this one walks and talks like an arthouse project that’s deliberately too divisive and controversial to be a big awards player. That said, I predict Armas to have a very real shot at a nod, and I wouldn’t underestimate Julianne Nicholson either; MM’s mom is quite a role.

    The film has been officially rated NC-17 for “some sexual content.” A trailer could drop soon. Does anyone think this could be a vehicle for Ana or will it go nowhere in terms of awards season?

    The latter. I think I’m ultimately still excited to watch, though.

    I ultimately think this is going to skew a bit too artsy to stand a chance at being an Oscar contender (like I’m Thinking of Ending Things) but I’m excited to see Julianne Nicholson in a meaty film role like this.

    FYC: Better Call Saul, The English and The Good Fight in all categories including Emily Blunt, Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    He’s not prolific but I like Dominik’s films so far.
    I’m always up for NC 17

    I don’t think it will be a huge awards contender, but it will definitely be in the conversation by the end of the year when we look back at the films this year.

    We didn’t already have Michelle nailing it in ‘My Week with Marilyn’? Hmm
