"Compliance" (Trailer)

Inspired by true events, COMPLIANCE tells the chilling story of just how far one might go to obey a figure of authority. On a particularly busy day at a suburban Ohio fast food joint, high-strung manager Sandra (Ann Dowd (Garden State) receives a phone call from a police officer saying that an employee, a pretty young blonde named Becky (newcomer Dreama Walker) has stolen money from a customer. Convinced she's only doing what's right, Sandra commences the investigation, following step-by-step instructions from the officer at the other end of the line, no matter how invasive they become. As we watch, we ask ourselves two questions: "Why don't they just say no?" and the more troubling, "Am I certain I wouldn't do the same?"

The second feature from director Craig Zobel (the man behind the 2007 Sundance hit Great World of Sound), COMPLIANCE recounts this riveting nightmare in which the line between legality and reason is hauntingly blurred. The cast delivers startlingly authentic performances that make the appalling events unfolding onscreen all the more difficult to watch -- but impossible to turn away from. Delving into the complex psychology of this real-life story, COMPLIANCE proves that sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction.

Why isn't it easy to "just say no...."

Joie De Vivre - We're All Better Than This

Joie De Vivre is a band from Rockville, IL who formed in 2007. Joie De Vivre play a great style of emo and indie rock influenced by bands such as Mineral, God's Reflex, and other Deep Elm era bands of the 1990's. We're All Better Than This is the band's latest eleven song album, which serves as a follow up to their album North End, released in 2010. On We're All Better Than This, the band offers up eleven new songs of honest, sincere, and heartfelt emo. I really liked this midwestern style of emo and listened to a lot of Braid, Promise Ring, Appleseed Cast, and Get Up Kids when I was in college back in the day and I'm really glad bands like Joie De Vivre carry the torch with this style of music. Overall, We're All Better Than This makes for a great listen. Definitely required listening for fans of Empire!, Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate), Football, Etc., and Prawn.
