Andrew Dominik Says ‘Blonde’ Is About “All The Unloved Children Of The World,” Doesn’t Deserve Its NC-17 Rating & More

Today, Wednesday, May 11, as a one-time global event, filmmaker Andrew Dominik’s new documentary on musicians Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, “This Much I Know To Be True,” premieres in select theaters (check the “This Much I Know To Be True” website to see where it’s playing today near you). If Dominik’s last documentary with Cave, “One More Time With Feeling,” was a dark elegy about grief, this new one (read our review here), is much more like a spiritual, nearly gospel-like reverie about healing and the process of acceptance.

‘Mindhunter’ Season 3 Would’ve Been Set in L.A., Says Andrew Dominik

Click here to read the full article. Serial killer psychological profiling thriller “Mindhunter” would’ve headed to Hollywood for Season 3, had Netflix not indefinitely shelved the series executive produced by David Fincher. Season 2 director Andrew Dominik told Collider that had “Mindhunter” continued for a third installment, the show would have taken place in Los Angeles. “One of them was going to be hooking up with Jonathan Demme and the other one was going to be hooking up with Michael Mann,” Dominik said. “And it was all going to be about profiling making it into the sort of zeitgeist, the public consciousness....

Andrew Dominik Says ‘Mindhunter’ Season 3 Would’ve Gone To Hollywood

Denial, anger, bargaining, depression? Many are still trying to accept the chances of a third season of the David Fincher-produced serial killer series “Mindhunter” on Netflix are slim to none. The show is based on the very real group at the FBI that developed the agency’s profiling methods and signs of compulsive mass murderers after interviewing them in a prison setting about their lives and why they kill.

Exclusive: 'Mindhunter' Season 3 Would Have Sent the FBI to Hollywood, Says Andrew Dominik

It's not often that we as viewers and lovers of television get an inside scoop on what the future of a favorite show would have been — especially once it's canceled. In the case of Netflix's Mindhunter, which released its second season back in 2019, the series technically wasn't canceled so much as a possible third season was put on "indefinite hold" per David Fincher, though the series' executive producer has also confirmed in interviews since that Season 3 likely isn't happening, partly due to the fact that it would have required an even steeper budget than the previous one. Now, thanks to Season 2 director Andrew Dominik, we have even more of a sense of why Mindhunter's dead-in-the-water third season would've had a higher price tag.

Andrew Dominik Says NC-17 ‘Blonde’ Is Like ‘Citizen Kane’ and ‘Raging Bull’ ‘Had a Baby Daughter’

Click here to read the full article. “Blonde,”  Andrew Dominik’s Ana de Armas–led reimagining of Marilyn Monroe’s legendary rise to fame, has already made history as Netflix’s first NC-17-rated original film. Now, Dominik revealed his aims to have “Blonde” premiere at this year’s Venice International Film Festival after taking a “while to cut” the film with Netflix and coming to terms with the streamer. “Netflix [is] letting me release the movie I wanted to make,” Dominik told Collider, “and even with the NC-17 rating, I think that’s pretty good.” Dominik, mincing no words, also described “Blonde” as “a movie for all the unloved...

Exclusive: Andrew Dominik Talks His Marilyn Monroe Film, ‘Blonde’: “Like ‘Citizen Kane’ and ‘Raging Bull’ Had a Baby Daughter”

Arguably one of the most anticipated films of 2022 is Blonde from The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Mindhunter director Andrew Dominik. Blonde, based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, played by Ana de Armas, has been a passion project for years for Dominik, who originally wrote the script back in 2008. Joyce Carol Oates, who wrote the book of the same name on which Blonde was based, said that she has seen a rough cut and called it “startling, brilliant” and “very disturbing,” also saying it’s “an utterly ‘feminist’ interpretation… not sure that any male director has ever achieved anything this.” With high praise from the book’s writer, and a cast that also includes Adrien Brody as Arthur Miller, and Bobby Cannavale as Joe DiMaggio, Blonde is clearly going to be a film not to miss when it comes to Netflix later this year.

Exclusive: Andrew Dominik Talks Extended Cut of ‘The Assassination of Jesse James’: “There Is a Better Version”

While the film The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford from director Andrew Dominik wasn’t a hit when it was released in 2007, the revisionist Western has earned quite a following in the 15 years since it first came out. Appearing on many best of the year lists in 2007, earning two Oscar nominations (Best Cinematography for Roger Deakins and Best Supporting Actor for Casey Affleck), and with a remarkable cast that includes Brad Pitt, Sam Shephard, Jeremy Renner, Sam Rockwell, Mary-Louise Parker, Paul Schneider, and Zooey Deschanel, the appreciation of Dominik’s film has consistently grown—and for good reason.

‘This Much I Know To Be True’ Review: Andrew Dominik Captures Another Moody, Deeply Human Portrait of Nick Cave [Berlin Film Festival]

Sat in front of a computer, musician Nick Cave reads a few questions aloud. These are deeply existential musings sent in by people he has never met. A teenager reflects on how daunting it is to entertain the idea of parting with the anger that has been left from the death of his brother; somewhere else in the world, a man is left to rediscover himself after losing both his wife and his job. When there is nowhere else to go, people turn to Cave.
