You could hardly think of a racier subject and a more meandering, listless movie.

Elles is undeniably challenging, courageously delving into some immensely messy issues surrounding sexuality and the ways men and women barter in relationships.

Polish director Małgorzata Szumowska deserves some sort of award for making such a potentially spell-binding topic so flat.

I can't tell what Elles has to say and I rather think the filmmakers don't either

There is an element of voyeurism and titillation by design that seeps out in the realisation of the narrative

This Paris-based film from Polish director Malgorzata Szumowska is a fairly unengaging journalism procedural shellacked with a veneer of elliptical, complicated symbolism.

It's not great, but it could lead to interesting discussion.

Writer-director Malgorzata Szumowska breaks past the facile moralizing only once.
June 7, 2012
Sexy enough to arouse and honest enough to provide reasons to be turned off.

"Elles" has a surprisingly deep performance in a disappointingly shallow movie.

Beneath its sophisticated Frenchness and Juliette Binoche-led cast, Elles is gratuitous garbage.

The three actresses put on a show (including graphic sex scenes), but it's a small show.
May 28, 2012
The shock factor may put off some, especially men who might feel uncomfortable having their sex portrayed with such cruel strokes (including male film critics-this film has been panned by so many of them) ...

Binoche is the disappointment. More than half the problem is that the script, co-written by the director, gives her little to do but fret and mope.

While Binoche is almost always worth watching, this is one of the exceptions to that rule.

Yes, I know, it's the obvious semi-feminist take on the oldest profession in the world, and yes, men are pigs.

One of her (Binoche's) lesser choices.
May 10, 2012
How did the Polish filmmaker Malgoska Szumowska dupe the classy Juliette Binoche to participate in such a dubious, exploitative film?

May 10, 2012
Both provocative and muddled, the film's a moody, passive-aggressive tract that's buoyed by superior performances and sunk by its own uncertainties.

Binoche, as usual, gives her all, communicating a character complexity and believable anguish that the rather thin and routine material never quite deserve.
