The US Top 10 Netflix movies chart no longer includes Blonde.The contentious biopic, which debuted on the service on September 28, didn’t appear on Netflix’s Top 10 list for Monday, October 10. The movie only remained at the top of the charts for three days, according to IndieWire. Blonde is now in tenth place in the UK list as of Wednesday, October 12; it is ahead of the 2015 film Goosebumps and the Netflix original Old People.
Luckiest Girl Alive, a Mila Kunis-starring independent film, is the most watched movie in the US and the UK. Netflix originals can succeed, but usually only for a limited time. Three original movies made the top five on the current chart, but they only earned a small portion of the “Blonde” attention. It implies that although viewers might seek social chatter about movies, they might not necessarily want to watch the same movies. Mr. Harrigan’s Phone only held the top spot for one day before Mila Kunis’ “Luckiest Girl Alive” overcame it.
Blonde, a movie directed by Andrew Dominik and starring Ana de Armas, is a “reimagining” of Marilyn Monroe’s life and is based on a book by Joyce Carol Oates. Blonde’s narrative has caused some viewers to wonder whether it is true or not; the answer is that it is a little bit of both.The movie, which stars Ana De Armas, is billed by Netflix as a fictional depiction of Marilyn Monroe, and the blurb claims that it “blurs the borders between reality and fiction.” Blonde is influenced by Joyce Carol Oates’ biographical novel of the same name, which makes it unclear whether certain scenes in the book were based on real occurrences or not.
Model Emily Ratajkowski commented on the Blonde debate on TikTok, saying she was “so done” with how the media portrayed women’s pain.The viral video criticises the film and its use of Monroe’s legacy; it has already received over 2 million views as of the time of writing. Emily said, “I’m not surprised to hear it’s yet another movie fetishizing female pain, even in death. We do that in many, many different ways, but I want that to change.”
