Compliance

"If people walk out are they abandoning Becky? If they stay are they symbolically complicit in the awful events Becky endures?" Craig Zobel's (Great World of Sound (previously), Homestar Runner (previously)) new film Compliance explores a notorious string of disturbing prank calls (previously). The film has enjoyed almost universal acclaim from critics, but its audience reception has been... complicated.

This is one of those stories. A film by Ethan Duff. (via The Retroist) [more inside]

Lisa Gier King

Lisa Gier King - 'clearly willing and consensual sexual intercourse'

'Yahraus has consistently maintained that his sexual relations with King were consensual, a view shared by the police, the state attorney's office and the court'

or institutional misogyny?
Difficult to comment without seeing the film. Will releasing this film help either case? Hard to find anything online from the alternative viewpoint
