Experimenter movie plot

2022-04-04 08:01
The film is adapted from the 1961 Yale University power obedience electric shock experiment. The Experimenter raised the punishment voltage uncontrollably, and the voltage has already exceeded the limit of human beings. As long as every ordinary person obeys the rules, he may unconsciously become a killer, and Professor Stanley Milgram began to doubt human nature. Ordinary people are just puppets manipulated by others. After thousands of experiments, 65% of the people chose the punishment of pressing 450 volts mercilessly, and nearly 35% chose to be dissatisfied with the laboratory staff, but finally chose to compromise. This data surprised the professor, so he began to doubt the scientificity of the experiment. After improving the method, he experimented again, but got almost the same result. He learned from it that human nature is actually like this.

    This experiment is too famous, it has been discussed many times, and what can be read has been thoroughly read. There is so much that the film wants to achieve, without delving into how the evils of human nature are unleashed and suppressed, nor the experimental mechanism itself. One will present experiments, and one will present the complex interpersonal relationships of the scientific community. Too much control.

    The suspense of psychological experiments, the tone of pseudo-documentary and the philosophical thinking of preaching, this is Wen Qing's favorite look. But I didn't have much patience. After watching it for a while, I gave up.

Experimenter quotes

  • Stanley Milgram: I don't get along with all my students. The "flash in the pan?" How many people can manage even that flash? I've done some psych experiments, but in my mind I'm still about to write my great Broadway musical.

  • Stanley Milgram: [just before taking his picture] Do you ever feel invincible one moment and then worthless the next?
