    Enemy

    ★★

    Many of the greatest films in history are those that are confusing by nature, rely on grand twists and reveals, or contain ambiguous elements, all of which greatly enhance the film upon post-viewing discussion and a second viewing.

    Enemy is all of these things at once, but where Enemy fails is in its reliance upon these things. It prioritises the second viewing so heavily that it all but forgets to make the first viewing enjoyable. The first-time viewing experience is…

    Putney Swope

    ★★★★

    Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

    ★★★½

    Bandersnatch is most comparable to an illusion performed by a very skilled magician. It is clever, in ways even genius, but it is not as clever as it first seems, or as I hoped it to be.

    I'm a huge fan of video games such as Until Dawn, Life is Strange and most recently Detroit: Become Human, interactive narrative experiences with branching paths, which Bandersnatch is explicitly a metafictional parody of. I'm not sure entirely how this affects my overall…
