Experimenter ★★★★

“Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.”

I’ve always found Milgram’s obedience experiment to be really compelling, so I knew I’d also probably find this film compelling at the very least.

The film’s execution of Milgram and his experiments is really well done and unique enough to set this apart from other biographical films.  I found the inclusion of the old black and white photos as backdrops in some scenes to be kind of interesting too. I also surprisingly really liked Sarsgaard’s performance and his fourth-wall breaking monologues.

But if someone wants to explain the elephant to me that would be nice.
