    Craig Zobel's potent and provocative Compliance is torture to sit through. It's also indispensable filmmaking. How is that possible? Check it out. show more

    Some films are harder to watch than others - not because they're bad, which makes for a different sort of painful viewing, but because they touch on areas of such profound moral discomfort that the mere act of watching makes us feel complicit. We feel like gutless witnesses to a crime. And that's what makes Compliance such a hard thing to stomach. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    This nasty little bottom-feeder of a film is too condescending to be trusted, too manipulative to be believed, too turgid to be enjoyed, too shameless to be endured and, before and after everything else, too inept to make its misanthropic case. show more

    This is one of the worst movies ever its slow boring and as much as I appreciate the realism of the story it was a terrible movie. it is listed as a horror/thriller it was neither and nearly put me to sleep. everything in this movie could be done in a 10 minute fast food training video and should have never been made into a full length film. the supposed policeman was revealed much too early to be a fraud to the audience it took away the little suspense there may have been creating a long drug out movie that was a complete and total waste of my time. It is only getting 1 star because it won\'t allow me to rate a 0 star. I recomend that noone watches this movie if there\'s grass growing or paint drying I would recommmend you watch that instead it will be a much better; much more interesting use of your time.

    This movie is based on a situation that happened in my town of Lousiville KY some years back at a McDonalds. Some idiot low level manager was taking orders from a guy over the phone claiming to be a police officer and strip searched one of her employees and both the manager and the employee was dumb enough to follow along. I guess that\'s why orders get messed up....fast food places aren\'t known for hiring the smartest people.
