Blonde ★★½

Seeing Blonde later in its release cycle made avoiding any reviews or opinions nearly impossible. It’s the 2022 discourse film. The film inspires outrage among 20-some that haven’t seen a Monroe film or even Blonde. It sparked blind outrage for daring to capture Norma Jean through her trauma, rather than her triumphs or dazzling personality. I get why this portrayal could enrage the general populace, as the sex symbol and untouched icon are debased by Andrew Dominik. However, it’s not an abomination as the consensus believes, but more so a terribly dull film that wastes an opportunity to capture Monroe in all her glory.
