Das Experiment

While browsing my favorite movie review site, I came across a synopsis for a German film that I distinctly remember almost buying on DVD last Summer, but eventually passing up. I had no idea the movie was based on true events, but the synopsis makes reference to a surprising event that I’d never heard of, the Stanford Prison Experiment. Wikipedia has some info on it, though it seems to be largely taken from the official site. Interestingly enough, there are some surprising similarities between the experiment and the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. Fortunately, such experiments are a thing of the past. Right?
