Movie: Exam

Posted: March 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

During an English assignment a few weeks back, I mentioned one way I concentrate is listening to movies that I have basically memorized. I mentioned the movie Exam. I currently use it to fall asleep, every night. I think it’s a pretty great movie being that it takes place in only one room the entire movie. It’s a great low-budget movie.

There are eight people in a windowless room selected after a rigorous interview process and have to answer a question that’s right in front of them although they cant see it yet. The objective is to be the first one to answer the question correctly. There aren’t any rules besides these 3:

1. If you try to communicate with myself or the guard you will be disqualified.
2. If you spoil your paper intentionally or accidentally you will be disqualified.
3. If you choose to leave this room for any reason you will be disqualified.

The guards last question before he left the room was “Any questions?”

Eventually they figure out that indeed those are the only rules and they can do anything the guard didn’t say. One by one the candidates get removed for breaking the rules accidentally. It get’s so serious someone gets shot. You are literally on the edge of your chair the whole movie because you never know what’s going to happen next. It’s amazing what people will do for something they don’t even know what it is yet.
