    Black Mirror: Smithereens

    ★★★½

    What a powerful ending. The first act is not that great, and Chris' little monologue on ''people and their stupid phones'' is just really bad, writing and performance-wise, but the entire second half is fantastic. The entire sequence between Bill and Chris is excellent, delivering the message loud and clear even if it's not the most subtle but who gives a fuck.

    Very similar to 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙘𝙤𝙙𝙞𝙡𝙚 in just about every single aspect. This episode also hits harder today with TikTok…

    It sometimes astonishes me how second viewings after a few years can drastically change my view on a film. I remember 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙒𝙞𝙣𝙙 𝙍𝙞𝙨𝙚𝙨 as being fairly good but with boring sections, but now? Almost everything worked for me.

Every character is written so basically, everything's explained to you within the first 20 min, the scenes showing what happened before the dude entered the platform are boring and shit. To sum it all up, garbage script.…

    My soul is fucking broken. PLEASE WATCH THIS. Rarely do I watch a film (especially a recent release) that hits me so deeply that I want everyone to experience this. Not only is the animation fantastic, the execution of the plot is outstanding. Telling a (sadly) very relatable story in just 12 min with this style of animation is something I never knew I wanted to be made but I'm glad it is. I don't live in the US but…
