Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Huppert is phenomenal in her most unnerving performance since Michael Haneke's "The Piano Teacher."
Fresh: Elle's moral ambiguity and controversial content are its strengths.
Fresh: Elle is clean, deep, and uncomfortable.
Fresh: Like its heroine, the film shocks by lunging back and forth between comedy and tragedy.
Worth seeing for her performance
Not easy subject matter, but like Nocturnal Animals, certainly leaves you thinking about the human psyche. Isabelle Hubbert's performance was incredible - nuanced, seductive, and frightening in its depth. Certainly makes a statement on misogyny, and how women respond to it.
Should have gone straight to VHS.
This was pathetic. Without question the worst movie I have ever seen. Quite possibly the worst movie ever made. If I paid 5 cents for this I would still want a refund. I held out hope thinking there would be a payoff in the end for having to suffer through this, but I was wrong. There was no payoff. The ending was just as pathetic as the rest of the movie. If you enjoy feeling less than human, a bit less intelligent for having watched, then you may enjoy it.
Amazing acting. Great twist st end. Kept me on the edge of my seat.
