No stranger to controversy, director Paul Verhoeven’s latest
offering is a provocative noir thriller that stunned audiences at Cannes.
Isabelle Huppert is mesmerising in her award-winning role as
Michèle Leblanc, the CEO of a video games company, who is violently assaulted
in her own home by a masked intruder. Verhoeven is typically subversive in Elle, unconcerned with fulfilling
expectations of what would at first appear to be a story of revenge, by merging
traumatic acts of violence with moments of dark satire.
More Basic Instinct
than Showgirls, Elle is an alluring psychological thriller that is peak-Verhoeven:
a film that will no doubt cause debate with its themes that explore sex, power
