"The opening scene of “Elle” is a shocker: a brutal sexual assault witnessed by a house cat and filmed with pitiless detachment…Everything that follows is, in some ways, even more shocking, as the movie — a masterpiece of suave perversity, directed by Paul Verhoeven — leads its audience through a meticulously constructed maze of ambiguity, scrambling our assumptions and expectations at every turn, dispensing discomfort and delight and daring us to distinguish one from the other." – A.O. Scott, The New York Times


“The opening sequence of ELLE is just the start of the demented and exhilarating experience that is this movie… a high-wire act without a net.”
– Roger Ebert

“With her steely hauteur, Isabelle Huppert is utterly arresting in Paul Verhoeven’s provocative film. No other actor could have pulled it off.”
– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
