A Movie Review: Blonde 2022

Blonde is a 2022 movie directed by Andrew Dominik. The movie cast includes actors Ana de Armas, Adrien Brody, Sara Paxton, Bobby Cannavale, Caspar Phillipson, Scoot McNairy, Rebecca Wisocky, and Julianne Nicholson. Mostly in the entertainment industry, female celebrities are considered to be a symbol of sensuality and attractiveness. Their presence in the bedroom is meant to be fantasized by the exploiters. The angelic ideal of beauty without the controversy of one-night stands was frequently kept secret and shuttered behind the doors, unknown to the general public. Every American’s ideal woman, Marilyn Monroe was a “cool girl” of her era and a desirable beauty with the perfect mix of sex appeal and approachability. Blonde aims to demolish the ideal pinup and dispel the spotless legend around Monroe’s fame.

Dominik finds it Harder to Get through to Monroe in Movie Blonde

In some ways, Blonde, the second film version of Joyce Carol Oates’ 2000 book, is a spiritual sequel to Andrew Dominik’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Dominik discusses obsession, celebrity, and immortality after death in both movies. Jesse James, an outlaw whose position in history books was cemented the minute Ford shot him in the head, allowed him to reverse the stereotypical American masculine celebrity. Dominik finds it harder to get through to Monroe in Blonde. In his most recent film, he abandons subtlety and ups the weirdness, producing an unsettling spectacle with talking CGI embryos and excessive topless views of Marilyn Monroe. Blonde leaves a lot to be desired during significant portions of the movie due to Dominik’s lofty ambition, yet when everything clicks into place, Blonde delivers a punch, a stab to the gut that tears to the heart. Because of the movie’s inappropriate sound editing and harsh lighting, Blonde occasionally reminds us of a horror film. An abortion filmed from the perspective of the unborn is similar to the French extremity film Inside, and the crackling of cameras flashing at movie premieres sounds like the flames that engulf Los Angeles the day her mother abandons her. Throughout the movie, Ana de Armas screeches as Marilyn pierces through the film. She lowers into her seat awkwardly at a premiere, staring at herself on screen while the audience’s faces seem to be blurred.

Dominik struggles with Blonde

The lustrous, expressive eyes of De Armas are a window into Monroe’s fears and a doorway into her soul. Blonde wants you to constantly keep in mind that Monroe was just a character—a made-up creation of Norma Jeane—who ballooned out of proportion when the world began to swallow her with fervor. It’s a dissection of the conventional biopic and an effort to hold a mirror to the fantasy that fans frequently yearn for, and Monroe’s devotees have remained fixated long after her passing, idolizing, protecting, and adoring her. Dominik has trouble with Blonde specifically because of how it dissects the female mind in the spotlight. The Freudian nature of Norma Jeane’s desires feels like it was ripped from a film student’s essay, even though it may not be on design misogynistic. Although extraordinarily bold, the aforementioned talking fetus comes across as dangerously pro-life, and every time Norma Jeane refers to a male in her life as “Daddy,” it is uncomfortable. But perhaps these oblique examples are necessary because Blonde comes on abruptly and makes what had before felt hollow become agonizingly visceral when de Armas’ performance is allowed the room to be quiet and frightening.
Overall the film did an average job.
