What if somebody made a film about the infamous Zimbardo prison experiment? You know, that thing they did in Stanford in the early ’70s where they locked up a bunch of students in a pretend prison and had pretend guards abuse them and mis-use them until common sense prevailed and the experiment was called off? Well, director Oliver Hirschbiegel’s film explores what would have happened if the experiment was allowed to continue. It’s not pretty, though stars Moritz Bleibtreu and Maren Eggert are. The Experiment is doubly strange in that it works as an action film and as an art-house psychological drama. Take your beer-swilling, football-watching, postmodern comparative linguistics friends to see it … you’ll be glad you did!
