It's not the kind of movie that depends on the certainty of an ending. It's more about how things continue.
75
The success of Chloe is largely due to the contribution of screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Chloe is director Atom Egoyan's foray into the realm of what might be called artful trash. This is a high-toned erotic thriller, handled with style and some emotionally raw scenes, aiming for an effect that's pleasingly unnerving, if not outright arousing.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Egoyan doesn't flinch from exploring the dark side of curiosity. That includes dealing with sexuality in a way that might make some moviegoers uncomfortable.

The Hollywood Reporter
Moore and Neeson beautifully underplay their roles, lending screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson's ("Secretary") dialogue an unexpected, palpable poignancy.
63
There are two questions to ask about a film such as Chloe: Is it erotic? Yes. Is it good? Yes, until it devolves into third-act pretentiousness and preposterousness.
63
For those who remember Egoyan at the top of his craft, there's no way to represent this as anything less than another disappointment.
50
The film is Moore's story, and she acts the hell out of one sexy scene, but most of Chloe is plodding and drab.
50
I didn't believe a word of it.
50
But c'mon! Erotic obsession, catfights, naked chicks making out -- at heart Chloe is a midnight movie, and all the Vivaldi in the world can't change that.
20
A tacky 'Fatal Attraction' for the lesbian set.
