Compliance (2012)

Crime, Drama 1h 30m

AroView: When a prank caller masquerading as a police officer convinces a fast food restaurant manager to interrogate an innocent young employee, no-one is left unharmed.

This tense chamber-thriller might not be entirely psychologically water-tight, but the subtext of authoritarian control is strong enough to carry it over any dips in credulity. The acting too, is top-notch, especially that of Ann Dowd, whose normalcy as a responsible middle-manager makes the controversial events relatable to a wider audience outside the arthouse. Based on true events.

“A suspenseful psychological drama for viewers prepared to tolerate its extremes.” ~ Justin Lowe, Variety.
