They never imagined it would go this far.
20 men are chosen to participate in the roles of guards and prisoners in a psychological study that ultimately spirals out of control.

I don't really know what to say after watching such a movie like this. I feel this emptyness inside of me, knowing that this is a study and people have gone through similar situations in the study (though there the experimentors actually stopped it before they thought it got too violent, which still is too late). I'm constantly throughout the movie thinking about, what if I was the prisoner? What if I was the guard? What would I have done? And under such group pressure no matter the category, I would probably not be as brave as some of these were. I just... I think all people should watch one movie like this in their life, 'cause it really makes one think about the future of our legal system and how we all are influenced by other people under special circumstances.
