Blonde ★★

dreary and repetitive, justifying little of itself save for being a showcase of symbolic technique, as it mistakes rigor for sheer intellect; the online discourse surrounding this was a much grander affair than its compressed streaming debut. dominik's eye is cold, smothering monroe's glamour with loud irony; he wishes to use the vulgar and abrasive to convince us of internalized misogyny. one of the viziers at netflix should have whispered to him that he needn't have tried so hard to impress us, much less himself; blonde is too desperate to devour its subject matter for the sake of a simple thesis.
