Storyline

Inspired by a flippant remark about the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, filmmaker A.J. Bond made a bet with his close friend, actor David Amito, to see which of them could withstand a week of psychological torture at the hands of the other. What begins as a bizarre and darkly humorous experiment gradually spirals out of control, testing the limits of their friendship. Written by Anonymous

Let's hope it's fiction
8 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

"Stress Position" is definitely not a movie that leaves you behind with a good feeling afterwards. In a documentary kind of style it tells the story of two friends that bet to break the other, testing out how much each of them can stand.

The concept of this is very interesting. It would be a lie to say, that some rude parts of our personality aren't triggered by it. As probably predictable, the experiment escalates, the punishments get more and more cruel and climax into a real nightmare.

All of my rating is based on the hope and to some extent believe, that this is all scripted. It is sold as a documentary but I cannot help but think that this is really a scripted movie, the characters just behave a bit too stylish and artsy, sometimes also predictable, to really resemble true persons. If it should be based on real happenings nonetheless, it is a shame. I don't want to see people break in real life and this would go far beyond the border of what an interesting film is worth doing.
