Some would, like these 20 characters in this film. 2 weeks in prison, some assuming the role of guards and some of prisoners. Guards are given the liberty to arrange things pretty much the way they want, with only one major rule: no violence allowed.

Director Hirschbiegel uses slightly a... read more

''The experiment succeeds or fails with you! If you don't do your job right... The experiment makes no sense and we can stop it right now.''

A makeshift prison is set up in a research lab, complete with cells, bars and surveillance cameras. For two weeks 20 male participants are hired to play prisoners and guards. The 'prisoners' are locked up and have to follow seemingly mild rule... read more

It is one of those movies I kept hearing about for a very long time so I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I wasn’t disappointed. Indeed, during the whole thing, I was rather flabbergasted by what was going on but I couldn't help wondering if it would happen the same way in real life (apparently, it did since it is based on an actual experiment).

the giraffe's Movie Exchange Program in review (35 movies items)

"First viewing - March 20th phillydude's thoughts Xanadon't's thoughts A brilliant fictionalized version of the events of the Stanford Prison Experiment, and thus a thought-provoking exploration of how humans will behave under stressful conditions in close quarters. The entire cast gives perfect performances, and the various technical aspects impress as well when you're not completely submerged in the story & events. It's not often I leave my couch & move closer to the TV during a film's final m"

"And that's what happens when you give absolute authority to a group of people, also, one of them being a psychopat doesn't help. Great movie, really powerfull. The fact that it's based on a real event is rather disturbing. "

Glad you finally sat down with this one. I was quite blown away by it when I watched it last year. Very thought-provoking too.

A very good movie

“It is one of those movies I kept hearing about for a very long time so I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I wasn’t disappointed. Indeed, during the whole thing, I was rather flabbergasted by what was going on but I couldn't help wondering if it would happen the same way in real life (apparently, it did since it is based on an actual experiment). I wasn't completely convinced at first but it was eventually really engrossing and it will remain in my thoughts for a few more days, that's for sure. To be fair, the movie was not perfect. In my opinion, the beginning, when they introduce you to the main character was actually pretty weak. I mean, it is pretty obvious that they wanted the viewers to identify with the guy, to better understand his motivations, but it felt pretty aw” read more

"Original Title: 'Das Experiment' Directed by: Oliver Hirschbiegel With: Moritz Bleibtreu Plot: A makeshift prison is set up in a research lab, complete with cells, bars and surveillance cameras. For two weeks 20 male participants are hired to play prisoners and guards. The 'prisoners' are locked up and have to follow seemingly mild rules, and the 'guards' are told simply to retain order without using physical violence. Everybody is free to quit at any time, thereby forfeiting payment. Note:"

" March pick In 2012 I was involved in a group project with fellow Listalites jaytoast, phillydude, and Xanadon't, called Movie Exchange Program. We exchanged several movies we own throughout the year, and this was hands-down my favorite of them all."
