After the premiere, the film received a 14-minute standing ovation.’ Blonde’ media word of mouth also came out immediately, the film currently has a Rotten Tomatoes fresh rating of 84% (19 reviews 16 fresh and 3 rotten), MTC average score of 63 (15 reviews 7 good and 8 medium), the response is warm and full of controversy at the same time.
Media comments: “‘Blonde’ is clever, charming, and sometimes touching. But it can be equally alienating by design – constantly turning the camera on the viewer, sometimes with Marilyn pointing directly at it. For a film with a nonlinear narrative and a touch of obscurity, it will be difficult to buy into. “
The movie ‘Blonde’ is based on the best-selling novel by Joyce Carol Oates, which follows the life of Marilyn Monroe. The film is scheduled to be released on Netflix on September 28th and is rated NC-17 by Northern America.
