Are meaty female roles so hard to come by in the US these days that even actresses as formidable as Moore choose such compromises?

Becomes more a turnoff than a turn-on.

Chloe starts off as an intriguing psychological drama - and then veers off into B-movie territory. Yet Moore and Neeson are such classy actors that they can't help but elevate the pulpy material.

The film goes shockingly flat when the more conventional thriller elements--what should be the film's bread and butter--kick in.

Egoyan's lyrical, ethereal style is present, but Catherine's motivation and masochistic tendencies seem to emerge out of nowhere.
December 3, 2010
I'm not often a fan of remakes but this intriguing tale has been beautifully told by Oscar nominated director Atom Egoyan.

October 24, 2010
An erotically charged arthouse thriller that will make you squirm in your seat and curse yourself for bringing a date.

The liberally featured architecture of Toronto, where Chloe was shot, is outstanding. The film is another matter.

Amanda Seyfried is a sweetly vulnerable Chloe; Julianne Moore is cold, brittle and, well, Julianne Moore, as Catherine. Fascinating.
October 15, 2010
Pity Egoyan didn't expend that degree of attention on sculpting a more memorable film, especially when you've got the powerhouse potential of Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore at your disposal.

That this film takes so long to go off the rails -- when really, it could have been an instant train wreck -- is all down to Moore's poised portrayal.

October 13, 2010
As the film's tone moves from psychological drama to erotic arthouse thriller, slickness and absurdity overpower the playful, treacherous ambiguities it has established.
October 11, 2010
It's doubly disappointing because before everyone turns into clichés this seemed poised to actually say something moderately interesting about love and relationships.
October 11, 2010
While the film begins as an intriguing and tense thriller, the latter half veers into ridiculous melodrama.
October 9, 2010
The premise doesn?t really hold water and our credulity is stretched, just as it was in Anne Fontaine?s 2003 original, Nathalie
October 9, 2010
A tantalising thriller with explicit sexual content, the film is also a love story, made not so simple by the florid set up and narrative
September 25, 2010
This isn't a particularly deep story but it does a good job at making what would be obvious in a Skinemax movie much more ambiguous.

August 13, 2010
Moore and Seyfried provide the film with an intense breath of authenticity guaranteeing you feel the pain inflicted upon their characters by the plot's extreme circumstances.

August 11, 2010
Given all of its mind games and sex games and seductions through storytelling, it's surprisingly conventional, but... a compelling psychodrama with an elegantly sexy surface.
August 11, 2010
Even with all the sexual prerequisites met, Chloe feels more like a damp domestic drama than a steamy erotic thriller.
