Critic Reviews of "Experimenter"Boston GlobeOctober 29, 2015
Mostly playful if occasionally pretentious ...San Diego ReaderOctober 22, 2015
There are a few feints at considerations of human nature, and a word is spoken in defense of obedience, but the film serves better to start a conversation than to draw a conclusion.NewsdayOctober 22, 2015
Fascinating work by Michael Almereyda, a mix of audacious artifice, ruminations and reality.Chicago ReaderOctober 22, 2015
Peter Sarsgaard carries this engaging biopic of Stanley Milgram.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 22, 2015
When you have such a provocative foundation and such rich material to work with, pushing it to the next level isn't necessarily the best choice.Washington PostOctober 22, 2015
"Experimenter's" most striking quality is the way it encourages us to think deeply, from the first frame to the last, even if it's just to consider what on Earth an elephant is doing on screen.Brooklyn MagazineDecember 09, 2016
Experimenter is not only an inventive exploration of the life and personality of an offbeat and perhaps misunderstood intellectual; it is also an exposition of his relentlessly probing mind and jarring revelations.Vanguard SeattleDecember 04, 2016
Slight but intellectually entertaining.Bust MagazineOctober 05, 2016
You'll find yourself wondering if PBS has a documentary you could watch instead (at least then you'll feel smarter).Cinemanía (Spain)August 22, 2016
Tries to avoid the cliches of biopics but lacks spark and cleverness. [Full review in Spanish]Scene-Stealers.comMay 31, 2016
... one of the best and most overlooked films of the year ...Epoch TimesMay 20, 2016
It is rather encouraging to see a film as ambitiously cerebral as Experimenter let loose in theaters.
