A little while back when this movie got confirmed I dubbed it one of the biggest moments in Netflix's history. With their stock in the shitter, they have one nuke to drop on everyone and that's an NC-17 movie starring Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe. The director Andrew Dominik had to jump through a lot of hoops and deal with delays to make the movie he wanted, but it's almost here. He doesn't give a damn what people think about the rating as you can see from the quote below.
It’s a demanding movie,” Dominik said. “If the audience doesn’t like it, that’s the fucking audience’s problem. It’s not running for public office.”
The filmmaker added, ”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.”
Well so far, so good if you ask me. She certainly looks all the part of Marilyn.
A historic sex symbol being played by a modern day sex symbol. NC-17? Yeah take all my money.
Charge whatever you want for Netflix in September I'm game.
