    Great Social Psychology Film

    This is a great film to watch if you are a student of psychology, particularly social psychology. It really brings to life the classic Milgram work on obedience. There is a fair bit of Hollywood sensationalism, but the film does an admirable job dealing with the tradeoff between research ethics and the need of science to push ahead and gain knowledge.

    Outstanding depiction of Milgram and his life's work. Filmed in a way reminiscent of a "teleplay" with sparse set decoration and intimate scenes, this movie adds background to the incredible work Milgram did for social psychology.

    I thought the premise of this movie sounded interesting. After watching it I was left disappointed. The idea behind the movie was interesting but it was very slow and repetitive.

    The movie was a great purchase. The phone charger is great for the person on the go and can't spend their life next to an outlet. I use it everyday and it has only worked great.

    This movie is based off a true story and therefore has parts that can drag the movie on, but I was impressed with the plot and the end result. Recommend!

    I am a fan of Alexander Scaarsgard and he did not let me down. Though I was aware of the material and how it might unfold, I was delighted at this movie
