Ana de Armas criticizes NC-17 rating for her Marilyn Monroe biopic "Blonde"

quote:

When asked about the rating by French fashion magazine L’Officiel, the actress replied, “I didn’t understand why that happened. I can tell you a number of shows or movies that are way more explicit with a lot more sexual content than Blonde. But to tell this story it is important to show all these moments in Marilyn’s life that made her end up the way that she did. It needed to be explained. Everyone [in the cast] knew we had to go to uncomfortable places. I wasn’t the only one.”

Armas (Deep Water) plays the iconic actress and pinup model in the Netflix movie, which co-stars Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale and Julianne Nicholson. Blonde was given the rare adults-only rating for “some sexual content” by the Motion Picture Association in March.

Director Andrew Dominik previously predicted the film, which is based on Joyce Carol Oates’ novel, would get an NC-17, defiantly telling Screen Daily in February: “It’s a demanding movie. If the audience doesn’t like it, that’s the fricking audience’s problem. It’s not running for public office. It’s an NC-17 movie about Marilyn Monroe, it’s kind of what you want, right? I want to go and see the NC-17 version of the Marilyn Monroe story.”

The director also said Netflix “insisted” on hiring editor Jennifer Lame (Tenet) “to curb the excesses of the movie,” which includes a rape scene that was also in Oates’ book.

All the hubbub over the rating has resulted in a considerable amount of global publicity for the film and seems rather unlikely to reduce its viewership.

Oates’ acclaimed 2000 novel is a 700-page fictionalized take on Monroe’s life, which The New Yorker once dubbed “the definitive study of American celebrity.”

For good looking babes in Hollywood right now, it's this chick and Margot Robbie - everyone else is on the outside looking in.

What are the content triggers for NC-17?

Labia (meaning no fake merkin bush blocking the view)?

Butthole shots?

Cum?

Is any of this actually in Blonde, and if so, where can I watch it?

Scarlett Johansen shows her shaved cooter in "under the skin" and it was just rated R

I dont know, maybe multiple cooters in this one like showgirls..or just all done for publicity

NC-17:

100% nudity for both genders.

Very violent graphic gore scenes

More inappropriate and offensive language

Lots of sex scenes with open sex positions

Long dialogues

Rater R:

Sex Scenes are heavily edited.

The women is 50 percent exposed if nude. You only see the breasts.

The man is only exposed on his chest or legs if nude.

Graphic gore scenes are heavily edited.

Inappropriate extreme language is cut down

Shorter dialogues

Agreed. A Netflix release featuring one of the hottest women in the world and rated NC-17 for sexual content? You bet your arse people will tune in.

Flatulence. Monroe was notorious for constantly playing bombs over Tokyo.

That or depictions of rotting food. She'd stash half eaten meals under bed sheets in case she wanted to eat them later, forget about them, and the maids would find them days later.

Netflix isn’t stupid. They know “Ana de Armas” and “NC-17” will get a shitload of views regardless of what the movie is about.
