Compliance, 2012 - ★★★★½

A terrifying experience that's so unbelievable you know that it must be based on a true story. The first 30 minutes feel a lot longer and I wondered what else could happen in the next hour but then things only got worse. It's a shame that the ending feels rushed and introduces some ideas that are then not explored.

I understand some of the criticisms that there is nothing apart from the title cards to suggest this could have actually happened but this didn't bother me.

The two most extreme moments felt oddly edited and I wondered if the version shown on film4 had been cut for television.
