For those who like their sleaze with a thin layer of prestige, a great leading performance, and a director with a knowledge of all things dirty and psychosexual, Paul Verhoeven’s Elle will hold a great deal of appeal.
Catching up with the latest new releases this month, Oscar-nominated and Oscar-winning titles are the biggest arrivals for new release Tuesdays on both January 14 and 21. Topping the list of new releases is the Oscar-nominated Captain Phillips, and Oscar-winners In the Heat of the Night and Sunrise. Other new releases include Machete Kills, Carrie, and You’re Next.
