On December 27, 2016, our Art in Film group reviewed Elle. Michèle seems indestructible. Head of a leading video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle’s life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling gamea game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.
Released May 25, 2016. Directed by Paul Verhoeven.
Art in Film reviews include an indepth review and rating of the film’s composition, realism, artistic, cinematography, musical score, direction, writing, and whether or not our reviewer likes the story/film enough to recommend film to a friend. Ratings given on a 1 to 10 scale, where a rating of 1 is awful and 10 is excellent. In addition to rating components of a film, we also provide reviewers with a written questionnaire.
Elle is a psychothriller featuring a very strong and powerful woman with strong sexual content. Although the acting and film’s technical components are very good, the storyline was not well liked by our reviewers. About half of our reviewers would not recommend the film to their friends. Our reviewers mostly women and seniors.
