Experimenter ★★★★

What better way to dramatize the most famous electric shocks in the history of psychology than in a movie featuring all kinds of seemingly random moments of shock, like a lumbering elephant who wanders, unexplained, in the background of several scenes and obviously phony process shots. Provocative stuff, much of which is tied together in the final scenes about Stanley Milgrom’s philosophy than men are puppets who can be made conscious of their strings. EXPERIMENTER is almost a test to see if the same can be said of film audiences.
