We follow Milgram, from meeting his wife Sasha through his controversial experiments that sparked public outcry.
Plot: Yale University, 1961. Stanley Milgram designs a psychology experiment that still resonates to this day, in which people think they’re delivering painful electric shocks to an affable stranger strapped into a chair in another room. Despite his pleads for mercy, the majority of subjects don’t stop the experiment, administering what they think is a near-fatal electric shock, simply because they’ve been told to do so. With Nazi Adolf Eichmann’s trial airing in living rooms across America, Milgram strikes a nerve in popular culture and the scientific community with his exploration into people’s tendency to comply with authority. Celebrated in some circles, he is also accused of being a deceptive, manipulative monster, but his wife Sasha stands by him through it all.

Surprisingly Accurate and Creative Retelling of the Most Important Experiment Ever Done
This movie is about Stanley Milgram, arguably one of the most important social psychologists in our field, and specifically about one of his most important experiment – his obedience to authority experiment.
The movie depicts to my knowledge accurately the setup, conduction, and results of the experiment and goes further, crafting an interesting and weighted portrayal of the man that Stanley Milgram was. The acting is low key, Peter Sarsgaard especially delivers a down to earth performance which shows that he rigorously prepared for the role. All supporting characters (e.g. Winona Ryder, Anton Yelchin) do a good job and no one distracts from the key issues raised by the experiment.
Cinematography is good, although nothing special. Occasionally there are creative moments in direction. When the 4rth wall is broken by Sarsgaard and he speaks directly to the audience, weird things happen in the background, making these moments very endearing and interesting.
There are no thrills or action in this movie, as well as no conventional drama. It is kind of a biopic with a twist, although I would say the biographic aspect is downplayed by the focus on this specific experiment. Many scientific issues are addressed on a side note (e.g. the ethical code of doing experiments, which triggered the proliferation of ethical committees for scientific research).
I would recommend this movie to people who are interested in science, more specifically in psychology (but not exclusively), that do not need action, drama, or thrills and enjoy a well researched and crafted movie with good acting.
Unique, original, straight forward
I’m not a movie critic, but here’s my grain of salt.
To me, not the typical movie. More of a “docu-bio-movie”. Intelligent, but may be controversial for people that needs to hang onto their perception of themselves. I don’t.
I liked the main character, his curiosity, his daring. His narrative, in some parts directed at the spectator (me), brought me closer to the person, and engaged me in his questioning.
I see this movie as quite relevant in the actual time of mass marketing, mass disinformation, mass anything. Helped me acknowledge some of the human hidden parts in my own human nature.
I enjoyed every bit of it.
