Already looking to be one of the most polarizing movies of the year, Blond director andrew dominic has responded to the murmurs of trouble behind the scenes of the film starring Ana de Armas.

Blond It always seemed to be controversial, with a rare NC-17 rating being given to the film before its release. However, critics have almost universally praised de Armas’ performance, but several questions were raised about Dominik’s direction and vision for the film.

So, to a mixed response from audiences and critics, Dominik was given the opportunity to weigh in on the film’s behind-the-scenes themes. Accusations have been made that the film is potentially exploitative and dehumanizing, claims the New Zealander feels have to do with canceling culture.

“We live in a world where you can’t figure out what is canceled and what isn’t, and what you are allowed to say and what isn’t, and what is exploitation and what isn’t. Ideas about that seem to change very quickly nowadays and obviously if you have a lot of money invested in something you should err on the side of caution.”

Regarding its content, Dominik has been very defensive and has also spoken in the past that directing a film with a female lead is something completely new for him. Skeptics would begin to wonder if Dominik is intentionally stoking the fire with his comments, as he previously said the film “will offend everyone.”

Blond is still available to stream on Netflix as of September 28.
