Synopsis [T]he movie -- a masterpiece of suave perversity, directed by Paul Verhoeven -- leads its audience through a meticulously constructed maze of ambiguity, scrambling our assumptions and expectations at every turn, dispensing discomfort and delight and daring us to distinguish one from the other.4 stars out of 4 -- The opening sequence of ELLE is just the start of the demented and exhilarating experience that is this movie. ELLE is a high-wire act without a net.ELLE is a challenging film, but challenging precisely because it’s entertaining, because it’s laugh-out-loud funny, because it indulges its kinks. -- Grade: A[W]e get to watch another unforgettable and incomparable Huppert performance... -- Grade: B3.5 stars out of 4 -- Huppert, a fearless actress, gives a performance that's a riveting mix of carnal and chilly -- you can't take your eyes off her.[T]he most interesting thing about Michèle is that she’s played by Isabelle Huppert, whose reputation as one of the world’s foremost screen performers is more than upheld, and possibly even improved, by her masterful work here.[With] Isabelle Huppert in a performance of steely intensity that grows scarier and more awe-inspiring as ELLE progresses...ELLE is a tough movie to like, but not to admire, albeit from a distance. It’s certainly engrossing, keeping viewers continually off-balance and unsure of their own alternately outraged or seduced responses.5 stars out of 5 -- Not only is ELLE among Verhoeven’s best films, it enshrines one of the finest performances Isabelle Huppert has yet given. And that really is saying something.In this thriller from director Paul Verhoeven, the head of a successful video-game company (Isabelle Huppert) has her world turned upside down when she is sexually assaulted in her home. Instead of reporting the crime to the police, however, she opts to hunt down the man responsible on her own. When she finally tracks down her assailant, they become locked in a dangerous game that threatens to consume them both.
