"I would never do that." That's what any normal person should say after watching 'Compliance.'
The film, a taut, stomach-turning 90 minutes that elicits nervous laughter, baffled sighing and instances of plain old embarrassment, is a tone poem on malignant social control. That it is based on a true story means one thing above all: know the location of the bar closest to the theater, because you're going to need a drink after this one.
