This was the breakout film for Amanda Seyfried, in the title role. It's a good story of sex, manipulation, with even some dark psychological noir thrown in. Featuring an excellent cast, Chloe is emotional and rich with sexual tension. I liked this more than Fatal Attraction; it is admittedly uneven yet nonetheless diabolical. Julianne Moore is really spectacular. She's gynecologist (who writes this stuff?) who's clever plan to tempt/test her husband (Neeson) bewilderingly backfires. Moore is one of my favorite actresses; she carries off more diverse roles than anyone. While I enjoyed several aspects of Egoyan's direction, the film had "B" movie flashes as well. I didn't like the ending at all; it didn't ring true and was kind of anti-climactic. Enjoy it for what it is, sexy and dangerous.
