A twisted rape thriller by "Basic Instinct" director Paul Verhoeven drew rave reviews Saturday in Cannes as one of two films about a woman trying to prise back control from her attacker.With its radical take on the aftermath of a brutal sex crime, the Dutch director's latest movie "Elle" had everything to set critics on edge before the screening.Some critics said Huppert delivered the performance of her career.The movie is based on the book "Oh ...
