And what did you think of the movie? Add your comments below.


1) If you haven't seen the movie, don't post here, because it will be deleted.
2) If you add two-bit comments like "it rocked" or "it sucked the big one" or just a grade, it will be deleted.
3) If you insult anyone from the board in your post, it will be deleted and you will receive a warning from the board. A second warning and you will be banned altogether. You can disagree with others all you want but no putdowns are necessary to make your points.

Das Experiment 8/10

Based on the "Stanford Prison Experiment" 20 volunteers are paid to be tested.

8 shy, anti social introverts are releagted to being gaurds for the duration of 2 weeks. 12 Confident, cocky, strong spirited volunteers are locked in cells and must live as prisoners for the 14 days.

As the male ego and territoriality take a hold the gaurds abuse power while the prisoners of course unite. All done in the name of human psychology we must watch man reduced from intelligent creature to a violent animal.

What unfolds is not unlike a cross between LORD OF THE FLIES and THE CUBE. Its subject matter that has been done before in cinema but often not with such quality results.

Intelligent and thought provoking this German film really is fun to watch. Sure it's nothing new at the end of the day but its done with flair and delivers its inevitable conclusion with a well structured, tension filled finale.

Another quality foreign thriller that deserves much more notice. (Of course the US are gunna remake it but hey when is that ever better than the foreign original)
