The film needs more mice in scene. We'll add them in post.

Thoughts on the movie Exam

Exam, directed by Stuart Hazeldine.

This is a response to the article “Top 10 Sci-Fi Movies of 2010” by Peter Hall.

Because of you, sir, I saw the movie Exam. It’s bullshit. Total bullshit. Not even cleverly disguised bullshit. A story about 8 two-dimensional constructs with barely an ounce of humanity among them. 8 pseudo-people who jump at each other’s throats with super-human eagerness, because apparently the film didn’t have enough conflict already. They explore ludicrous dead ends in their pursuit to accomplish their goal. But how did their test-givers know they would pursue these specific dead-ends? Because the script never stops to think about whether things make any kind of logical sense. Forget story and characters: we need big twists! And in the end, what was the point of the test? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. There was no reason for the test to be designed the way it was. There was no point to any of it. It’s all bullshit.

    It was a religious movie. If you look at the whole plot from historical and religious context, you may see what the writers intended to imply.

    • Care to tell us what the deeper meaning is here? Personally, I’m not sure that any deeper meaning could save this film.
