Director Of Ana De Armas’ Blonde Talks New NC-17 Movie, Promises ‘There’s Something In It To Offend Everyone’

One of the unusual side effects of the global pandemic is that because a lot of movies saw their release delayed, movie fans were left to wonder about them just that much longer, in many cases, building them up even more. One of the movies that has been talked about a lot over the last couple of years is Andrew Dominik’s Blonde, which has been in development since 2012, and stars Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe. Blonde’s promising to be a controversial movie, if for its NC-17 rating alone, but the director is expecting the movie will “offend everyone.”

Blonde will be the first Netflix project to hit the streaming service with an NC-17 rating, and that fact alone means viewers should expect something that crosses lines that most movies, especially movies on Netflix, don’t. What that means specifically, we don’t really know yet. The MPAA’s explanation of the Blonde rating is simply that it includes “some sexual content.” Speaking with Vulture, director Dominik says that while the movie, will have a “morality about it,” it might not be the sort that audiences are expecting or comfortable embracing. The director explains…  

It’s an interesting time for Blonde to come out. If it had come out a few years ago, it would have come out right when Me Too hit and it would have been an expression of all that stuff. We’re in a time now, I think, where people are really uncertain about where any lines are. It’s a film that definitely has a morality about it. But it swims in very ambiguous waters because I don’t think it will be as cut-and-dried as people want to see it. There’s something in it to offend everyone.
