Having just returned home from a theater screening of the Netflix movie Blonde, the not-quite Marilyn Monroe biopic from writer/director Andrew Dominik that earned the streamer its first NC-17 film rating and which stars Ana de Armas in all the late starlet’s breathy-voiced and effervescent glory, let me begin this review by posing a challenge.
I’d like you to take a quick moment, if you don’t mind, and try to conjure up a memory of the most unsettling, disturbing film you can recall ever subjecting yourself to. It can be something you caught in a cinema, or a streaming release that you watched at home -- anything. Just as long as the movie shocked you or evoked a feeling of revulsion.
Whatever you choose, be assured: It is, in fact, a Pixar film compared to the menagerie of misery, pain, depravity, and violence that awaits viewers who choose to stream the nearly 3-hour-long Marilyn Monroe Netflix movie when it debuts on the streamer on September 28.
The post Netflix’s Blonde is one of the darkest, most lurid, and unsettling movies I’ve ever seen appeared first on BGR.
