"Yikes...that look can't be good for anyone."

So, medications day 14 of the DeFranco Nation Movie Club had me watching Atom Egoyan’s erotic thriller, search “Chloe”.

Starring Julianne Moore, Liam Neeson and the stunning Amanda Seyfried, we find ourselves in the midst of a bizarre love triangle that twists and turns slowly through a maze of distrust and betrayal.

Check out my video response to Philip DeFranco’s review. I didn’t like what he had to say http://bit.ly/eWgLra

So, check out my thoughts and compare. Let me know what you think.

  1. I thought Chloe was an amazing movie! Great review Craig (WTWTF:) Can’t understand why some people weren’t blown away by it.

    • Ya, totally. Different strokes for different folks 😛
      Thanks for the comment!

  2. Chloe, a shallow, formulaic thriller that feels rushed and somewhat routinely slapped together, registers as a surprising disappointment. Seyfried is good and sadly is probably the best to watch out of the three. Good review, check out mine when you can!

    • Hey Dan the man,
      I checked out your blog and like a lot of what you say. However, we do differ on Chloe. You’re right about the acting, including that lousy punk, Max Thieriot. But I didn’t see it as predictable. I find all of Egoyan’s work has a very hypnotic feel. Because of it, I find I’m never thinking ahead in his movies. I just sit back and soak up each scene as it comes. Plus, I was so pulled into Moore’s character’s perspective that I really didn’t see what was going to happen next. I believe this was Egoyan’s MO. It worked for me. But, to each is own.
      Say, wanna subscribe to each other’s blogs? That way we can keep up with each other’s reviews and get a dialogue going. Whaddya say?
