    At this length, a traditional depiction of downward spiral, however potentially tougher, would be more interesting, because as is this feels akin to treading 'round and 'round the same thin thematic and story pool for almost three hours with nary a variation, and however often stunning this looks can't overcome that. Five stars for de Armas' performance though (alternatively, half a star for the Kennedy scene). 5/10
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    Kennedy scene may be the worst scene in a movie this year.

    Combining some discount Malicky first person voice/over while getting throated by JFK's cock is a BRUH moment. Talk about vulgar auteurism!

    Actually a fan of this one. With Elvis and this I feel this is the year where a lot of filmmakers dared to break away from the strict confines of the biopic picture. I guess Larraín has been doing it too with his Jackie but I found that one such a snooze to be honest. Instead, Blonde is definitively cinematic, ambitious and unique. I understand where the charges of cruelty are coming from but Marilyn is a public icon. It's inevitable to see someone with such a large cultural footprint portrayed in a variety of alternative ways and I believe nothing in the film is outside the realm of artistic rights.
