The movie titled "Experimenter (2015)" I feel was a great film. I loved the styling of the film most of all especially the green screen backdrops and how they offset the vibe of the view. The acting and the cast I believe were perfect for such a film and the story was very intriguing. I've saw various films based on human experiments and I believe this one was perfectly created. The educational standpoint or setting of where, when, and why was a great introduction and following through out the film. I enjoyed how it showed the mindset of humanity in its time frame being that I'm certain the results would in today's time be even worse as humanity has devalued its beliefs, ethics, and life meanings.
Very well put together film, and once again I cannot express how well the cast performed within such a film style. It was artistic, poetic, yet realistic; great stuff.
