About The Stanford Prison Experiment

The Stanford Prison Experiment, directed by Kyle Patrick Alvarez, is a gripping and disturbing portrayal of the infamous psychological study conducted in 1971. The film follows a group of college students who are randomly assigned to play the roles of prisoners and guards in a simulated prison environment. As the experiment progresses, the participants become increasingly immersed in their roles, leading to a shocking and violent outcome.

The film is anchored by strong performances from its ensemble cast, particularly Ezra Miller as the sadistic guard "John Wayne" and Billy Crudup as the increasingly conflicted lead researcher Dr. Philip Zimbardo. Alvarez's direction effectively captures the claustrophobic and oppressive atmosphere of the prison, while also exploring the ethical dilemmas raised by the experiment.

The Stanford Prison Experiment is a thought-provoking and unsettling film that raises important questions about the nature of power and authority. It is a must-see for anyone interested in psychology, sociology, or human behavior.
