'Compliance' -- 3 stars

R; 1:30 running time It's an uncompromising and, in its way, honorable drama built upon a prank call that goes on and on, getting worse and worse for the people on the other end of the line. The writer-director's question is simple: How could this have happened? It's serious work as well as a nasty bit of goods. -- Michael Philips Read the full "Compliance" movie review
