Blonde ★★★★

Abstract, transcendent, incredibly bleak. Ana de Armas delivers a truly tortured performance in a film that’s deeply dark and depressing, but ultimately profound for its entire runtime. A mix of surreal, fragmented images and sounds, and ones that are cold in their reality.  Like a top review points out it’s truly a successor to The Last Temptation of Christ in both it’s thematic purpose and public reaction, and also how they should be viewed as not an actual depiction but as a larger statement. Hopefully it ages well once people cool off and actually use some art comprehension skills. Truly an odd and provocative fever dream of a movie.
