In this episode of The Curzon Film Podcast we attempt to analyse Paul Verhoeven's astonishing, labyrinthine character study Elle.

Elle is the latest from provocative director Paul Verhoeven (Showgirls, Basic Instinct, Robocop) and won the Best Foreign Language Film award at the Golden Globes - lead actress Isabelle Huppert also took home the award for Best Actress on the same night. It's a remarkable film that warrants multiple viewings and multiple discussions; to start off your conversation about it, on the podcast this week we have Daniella Verektinidi, Jenna Hobbs and Jake Cunningham
