    I've seen a lot of Canadian director Atom Egoyan's early films, up through The Sweet Hereafter, but have lately because collection some of his more recent films. Chloe is unusual because it's the only(?) one that isn't written by Egoyan as well. Maybe it's why it's so linear in structure. It's clear why he was still attracted to this erotic thriller though. Egoyan ofter deals in second-hand emotion, usually filtering relationships through technology. In this case, Julianne Moore's jealousy makes her hire a call girl (Amanda Seyfried) to see if her roguish husband (Liam Neeson) will make a move on young thing, thus proving his suspected serial infidelity. Living an affair vicariously through another person, Moore's character is aroused as much as she is despondent. Needless to say, that's an impressive cast that doesn't sound one false note. If the film has a weakness, it's the last act that becomes a melodramatic thriller. It's still artfully done, and the characters remain ambiguous and interesting, but I somewhat resent the inclusion of formulaic elements in what is otherwise an engrossing character study. 7 years 11 months ago
