Suddenly, she gets a phone call from a man claiming to be a police officer who has a complaint that one of her young female employees has stolen from a customer. At the orders of this authoritative sounding stranger, Sandra takes the apparent accused, Becky, to a back room to search her before she is picked up. Once there, the phone scammer manipulates the gullible personnel into participating in Becky’s sexual humiliation that grows more twisted with every new sucker on the phone. Only when one final person has the conscience to revolt do they realize the crime they were tricked into, which the real police are hard pressed to solve.
Plot: On a particularly busy day at a suburban Ohio fast food restaurant, manager Sandra receives a phone call from a police officer saying that an employee has stolen money from a customer.

I dare you NOT to react …
I dare you to watch Compliance and not have some deep-rooted psychological reaction. Yell at the screen. Curse the characters. Walk out in disgust. I guarantee ANY movie fan will react.
Compliance isn’t a movie one can casually watch and shrug-off as if one hasn’t just seen something. I am not even sure how my closest friends would react to a film like this one. I watched with curious fascination at first but the fascination and interest quickly evolved into disdain and eventual outrage as the film played itself out for the audience’s voyeuristic entertainment. Knowing that the film is based on a “True Story” is even more off-putting but none-the-less (and possibly more) repulsive. Thinking back, it is even unsettling trying to “peg” the audience as the unsuspecting pawns in this perverse social experiment gone horribly wrong.
Before getting to the film specifically, much has been made in regards to this film and a series of psychological tests dating back to the 1960s which have been collectively labeled The Milgram Experiment. These experiments involved test subjects who believed that they were either the subjects of a series of tests OR those in authority conducting this series of tests. The Milgram Experiment was also briefly cinematically explored back in the early 1980’s in the film Ghostbusters in which the pretty blonde and the guy were guessing flashcards with symbols on their backsides. A wrong answer garnered a shock (poor guy). The Milgram Experiments were taken much further than this and caused many of the tested-upon subjects to appear to be near death after receiving numerous electrical shocks – the actual subject of the test were those placed in authority: how far would they be willing to go if they were supposedly cleared of all wrong-doing? Would people willingly allow their subjects to die?! Compliance doesn’t deal with electrical shocks but shock you it does! The set-up is simple. A frazzled fast-food manager working on a busy evening with a short shift of workers (and short on supplies like bacon), gets a phone call from a police officer asking about the young, blonde cashier on the front line of the restaurant who has apparently been accused of taking money out of a customer’s purse. As the officer is also busy, he is hoping the manager can assist him in asking the young employee (Becky – Dreama Walker of TV’s “Gossip Girl”) some questions. Calling her into the office, Becky, is confused and bewildered by the accusations; but as the manager Sandra (Ann Dowd – Garden State, Marley & Me, Bachelorette) HAS a police officer on the phone she does not want to appear to believe her own employee over the cop. What follows is beyond words.
Becky is subjected to a series of humiliations at the hands of Sandra at the behest of Officer Daniels. When Sandra is called away to assist with a series of events in the restaurant, another employee is brought in to watch over a by-now-nude Becky. Handed the phone to talk to Officer Daniels and take his instructions, EACH employee reacts differently some surprisingly and some not-so-surprisingly. The entire point of the film, I believe, is to shock but to also make each of us viewing this aware of WHO we would be. It is simple to say “I’d NEVER do that!” but is that too quick of a reaction. Sandra believes she is doing right because she is talking to a cop (it is NOT a spoiler to say she is NOT this plays out at the very beginning of the film); but does human decency ever register? I’ve read several attacks on the intelligence of these characters – “well, they ARE in the food service industry”; but that is an insult to mankind. Compliance asks a valid question and that incidents like this were duplicated (well nearly 70 times!) says something else. EACH person in this film is the subject of a cruel experiment all believing that they are COMPLYING with authority. Of course as astute viewer can see the holes – they are supposed to be there – but if there weren’t any logical gaps this film wouldn’t be as outrageous.
I believe this film fully succeeds in its goal. Watch and react.
Thought-provoking and frustrating
If the screenwriters were to have written this script in a vacuum, I would have been throwing popcorn at the screen due to what I’d consider to be the most illogical, ludicrous and unbelievable character decisions/motivations seen committed to film in a very long time. Sadly, this was based on a true story, which makes me want to tear my hair out at the sheepish state of American society and how so many people could be so readily manipulated and to such destructive ends. I’m horrified by the actions of the manager, her complicit co-workers, the baffling sadism of her fiancé, and the toothless submission of the young girl to such a bizarre situation. I’m horrified because in reality these characters were the most average of Americans but with such weak minds and will. I’m also horrified that the culprit on the phone is such a disgusting sociopath who would go to such bizarre ends to anonymously harm innocent strangers. And I’m horrified that this was not an isolated event. These are your neighbors. I’m horrified that this “slice of life” in modern American culture is only a “slice”, and that there’s so much more mindlessness where this came from.
I’m not the wisest of men, but I feel I can offer just a little sound advice for navigating this thing called life:
Question authority, and always think for yourself.
