Comply with this

Another appearance of our favourite police radio background audio, this time in Craig Zobel's Sundance darling Compliance.

When idiot fast food restaurant manager Sandra (Ann Dowd) finally realises she's being fleeced in order to torment and abuse the hapless young Becky (Dreama Walker) by a prank caller, the real cops are called in.

And just like we've heard in five other movies starring luminaries from Richard Gere and Michael Moore to Alicia Silverstone and a young Frank Whaley, when they arrive, there's no better way to give it all some authenticity than to play the audio clip that gives this blog its name.

It's becoming the Wilhelm Scream of police band chatter.
