    Compact, ultra-explicit two-character pic about what transpires when a beautiful straight woman hires a handsome gay man to "look" at her is gloriously mannered, proudly pretentious and undeniably compelling.
  2. 60
    The surprise of Anatomy of Hell is that Siffredi's character is ultimately more vulnerable than the woman
  3. What follows is graphic, but it's too cerebral and too challenging to be dismissed as pornography.
  4. 25
    Although several of her (Breillat's) previous films were intriguing and provocative, this one seems styled more as raw material for satire on "Mad TV" or "Saturday Night Live."
  5. Reviewed by: Ty Burr
    Despite all that onscreen turgidness, Anatomy of Hell is itself so much a matter of the mind that it never rises above theory.
  6. 25
    Ranks high on the squirm meter. But, unlike in most of her earlier work, there's no emotional payoff.
  7. The dialogue that is wrapped around the sexual activities only helps to make the film disgustingly ridiculous.
