All About Blonde Movie:
Andrew Dominik was the film’s director and screenwriter. He started working on the project, which was based on Joyce Carol Oates’s novel Blonde (2000), in 2010. Dominik talked about how interested he was in Marilyn Monroe, saying “Why is Marilyn Monroe the most famous woman of the 20th century? For men, she’s an object of sexual desire who needs to be saved right away. For women, she represents all the wrongs that have been done to them. She is a sister, a Cinderella, who has been sent to live in the ashes. I want to tell the story of Norma Jean as if she were the main character in a fairy tale.
I want her to be an orphan child who gets lost in the woods of Hollywood and is eaten by that great 20th-century icon.” Dominik said that this movie was “easier to understand” than his other works. He also said that his script had “very little dialogue” because he wanted it to be more of an “avalanche of images and events.” In addition, Dominik said:
It tells the story of how a traumatic event in childhood affects an adult who has a public and a private side. It’s basically the story of every person, but it’s told in a way that makes us think of something very familiar just because we’ve seen it in the media. It turns the meanings of all of those things upside down based on how she feels, which is pretty much how we all live. It’s how everyone in the world works. I just think it makes a lot of sense. I think the project has a lot of really exciting filming options.
Blonde was Dominik’s first attempt at making a movie where a woman was the main character. Dominik said during a 2007 screening of his western The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford: “It’s different for me to have a woman as the main character. My movies don’t have many women in them, so now I’m trying to imagine what it would be like to be one.”
What are Blonde‘s rating and runtime?
Blonde is the first official Netflix Original movie with an NC-17 rating. This is already known. In the UK, this would be the same as an 18.
Dominik said the following about Netflix letting the NC-17 cut go through:
Netflix is letting me release the movie I wanted to make, and even with the NC-17 rating, I think that’s pretty good.
As of now, we don’t know how long the movie will be, but Dominik has already hinted that it will be long by making a joke that asking the director how long their movie will be is like asking a woman how old she is.
