Must see

I caught this at the Film Fest and I'll be going back to see it again. You won't be disappointed.
Surely every arts student has heard of Milgrams experiments in human psychology, surely we've all harboured the thought that we would have acted differently to the masses. There's plenty of scope to ponder this and the whole cultural construct of good and bad as we are treated to one of the best bio pics I've ever seen. The film makers really had fun with this, constantly reinforcing that we are not seeing something 'real' by injecting the odd elephant in the room (nobody mentions it) or cutting right out of the set to reveal it starkly and perhaps comment that we are all actors acting out our lives.
