This is more or less a test run ...

The cherry poppin' movie for the LJ Movie Club is Das Experiment. It is a German movie based on the Stanford Prison Experiment conducted in 1971 that placed normal people in roles of prisoners and guards to see how the situations affected their personalities. Things went horribly wrong. Of course, the movie takes artistic liberties with the subject matter, but with Moritz Bleibtreu (Manni from Run Lola Run) as the main character, who cares about its historical accuracy.

Director: Oliver Hirschbiegel
Starring: Moritz Bleibtreu
Release Year: 2001
Country: Germany

Availability: Rental stores
BitTorrent: no known seeders

Discussion Date: May 20, 2004

Since this is the first assignment, I would like some feedback. Future assignments may not have the comment feature turned on, since this isn't the place for discussion ... the later discussion post will be for that. But, I'm looking for input on this. So, feel free to drop in some ideas or suggestions. Is this movie too hard to find? Uninteresting? Rather I'd find something you can download or see on TV instead of having to go and rent it?

(note: this wasn't picked by the random movie picker I mentioned, because that isn't done yet, and I currently have Das Experiment sitting on my kitchen table, so I picked it ... plus, my roommate suggested it and I was already thinking it, so ... yeah).

What'd'ya think?
