Compliance,based on true story of prank calls being made to many fastfood establishments in America in the 90s.
Not the greatest film but amazing how unquestioning people can be of what they believe to be authority

Saw that a few years ago. What the hell was the guy thinking with the blowjob?! Was he just an incel?

Yes, it's a good film, isn't it? Funny how Brody got the Oscar for that more or less straight off the bat (he'd done other stuff, but nothing major) and his career has simply fallen off a cliff since then.
Interesting also that Polanski, who was in hiding in Poland for much as the war as a Jewish child, said that he'd found Schindler's List sentimental in places, and that he sure as hell wasn't going to give in to one ounce of sentimentality. The scene with the Luger not working in Schindler's List was a case in point. He said that the SS would just go on until it worked, or borrow another Luger to blow someone's brains out.

Say what you like about Polanski as a human being. He makes generally good films. Recently re-watched The Ghost Writer, and it was easily as good as I had remembered.

Saw that a few weeks ago as well. While I agree Brody was very good and any other year he would deservedly win the oscar but that year he won it over Day-Lewis as Bill the butcher, frankly that was a crime. Day-Lewis deserve it more that year
