Although never mentioned in the movie, the real life experiment was funded by the U.S. Office of Naval Research and was of interest to both the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps as an investigation into the causes of conflict between military guards and prisoners. See more »
A guard incorrectly attributes the now instantly recognizable walk of the Frankenstein Monster to his first appearance in the 1931 film Frankenstein. The Monster didn't walk with his arms outstretched in front of him until Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man over a decade later. This is a common mistake. See more »
Okay - lets be honest here. Its not extremely difficult to make a film portraying a psychological experiment that was well documented and captured on film.
This film as more of a reenactment - just so you are aware.
Ezra Miller continues to shine as a prison subject in this movie. With the upcoming Justice League Films, and Miller portraying The Flash, its nice to see his work outside that to get more comfortable with his upcoming performance.
So - as the film title states, this a recalling of a social experiment gone a little too far, and had to be stopped early for reason I will not spoil.
The true nature of human empowerment is truly devastating to witness.
If you have time, see this tense thriller. It will however, raise as many questions as it answers.
A great thinking movie. Please don't forget to check out the source material on this study during, or after the movie.
Very interesting, very disturbing, and very enlightening.
