Review of Chloe, now playing in several locations

Categories:

Chloe
Director: Atom Egoyan
With: Julianne Moore, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried

I have been a fan of Egoyan since I saw his first movie released in the USA, The Adjuster, in 1991.  He has gotten more skillful in most aspects of film-making, especially the sheer beauty of the visuals.  Almost any frame from his movies could be hung as a picture.
Even in a movie like The Sweet Hereafter (1997), which I admired more than liked, the visuals were gorgeous and the story was involving, even if it failed to convince me.  Egoyan has a bent for the psychosexual melodrama, how one’s life can be twisted out of shape by an obsession with an inappropriate object of desire.
