The movie’s director Andrew Dominik has defended the rating, arguing that “the NC-17 version of the Marilyn Monroe story” is what viewers need, though that doesn’t imply he was at all times anticipating the restrictive NC-17. Dominik instructed Vulture that he thought he was taking part in within the R-rated sandbox when he was making the movie.
“I was surprised. Yeah. I thought we’d colored inside the lines,” Dominik mentioned concerning the movie’s NC-17 score. “But I think if you’ve got a bunch of men and women in a boardroom talking about sexual behavior, maybe the men are going to be worried about what the women think. It’s just a weird time. It’s not like depictions of happy sexuality. It’s depictions of situations that are ambiguous. And Americans are really strange when it comes to sexual behavior, don’t you think? I don’t know why. They make more porn than anyone else in the world.”

The NC-17 score reportedly created pressure between Dominik and Netflix, however the filmmaker instructed ScreenDaily in February that he has “nothing but gratitude for Netflix,” noting the streaming big supported the title even when it had some points with its content material. Netflix “insisted” on bringing in “Hereditary” and “Tenet” editor Jennifer Lame to “curb the excesses of the movie.” Dominik added that “Blonde is “a demanding film. If the viewers doesn’t prefer it, that’s the f—ing viewers’s drawback. It’s not operating for public workplace.”
“I imply, look, mate, Netflix is a giant enterprise with a lot greater fish to fry than ‘Blonde,’ by way of the place they spend their cash,” Dominik said when Vulture asked if Netflix is worried about the film. “They’re paying $400 million for films. Just a little $22 million film, it’s not going to interrupt the financial institution for Netflix. They simply need to get their form of advertising and marketing plan so as, I feel, earlier than they begin rolling it out. Then we’ve set to work out how they need it to enter the world. It’s not going to come back out ’til September. We shouldn’t even be speaking about it. [Laughs] By the point ‘Blonde’ comes out, everybody’s going to be sick of speaking about it.”
Dominik famous that if “Blonde” had opened a number of years in the past “it would have come out right when #MeToo 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.”
Netflix has not introduced a launch date for “Blonde,” though the movie is more likely to present up on the autumn pageant circuit.
