Mostly playful if occasionally pretentious ...

Peter Keough, Boston Globe, 2015-10-29

 

Fascinating work by Michael Almereyda, a mix of audacious artifice, ruminations and reality.

John Anderson, Newsday, 2015-10-22

 

Peter Sarsgaard carries this engaging biopic of Stanley Milgram.

J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 2015-10-22

 

"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.

Stephanie Merry, Washington Post, 2015-10-22

 

Seemingly loose and free-associative in style, "Experimenter" builds to an effect and, for all its humor - or rather, through its humor-makes a sober and chilling point.

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 2015-10-22

 

Peter Sarsgaard is wonderful as the postulating professor, but the fresh, attractively stylized film is less about Milgram and more about empathy, duty and post-Holocaust elephants in rooms.

Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail, 2015-10-16

 

Sarsgaard's sleepy, soothing voice and demeanor are bewitching.

Tricia Olszewski, TheWrap, 2015-10-15

 

Despite the story's freight, the laboratory shocks and Milgram's insistent melancholia, "Experimenter" is a nimble, low-frequency high.

Manohla Dargis, New York Times, 2015-10-15

 

Reading about these experiments is disturbing enough, but it's another thing altogether to see them convincingly dramatized.

Mike D'Angelo, AV Club, 2015-10-15

 

The movie's an intellectual shock tactic, but it succeeds.

Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post, 2015-10-14

 

The movie is itself a rat-maze of one-sided mirrors, windows upon windows, anonymous hallways, compartmentalized instances of watching, being watched, seeing and not-seeing.

Michael Atkinson, Village Voice, 2015-10-13

 

A biopic that feels more like a ride-along on an exploration of human nature.

John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, 2015-10-12

 

The word reflective suggests a slowdown or cessation of action proper, but Experimenter is busily, thrillingly reflective. Its artificiality makes it seem even more alive, more in the present tense.

David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture, 2015-10-12

 

Michael Almereyda dissects the life and work of controversial psychologist Stanley Milgram in a highly stylized biopic worthy of its subject.

Scott Foundas, Variety, 2015-01-25

 

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.

Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, 2015-10-22
