    Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

    ★★★★

    “You feel like you’re not making these decisions?”
    “I feel like I’m not guiding them. Like someone else is.”

    Even though I have always had a deep appreciation for film throughout my entire life, my love for television has not always been as consistent.

    Other than the lack of violence and character development throughout most of 1917, it is truly a masterpiece. Like many war films I’ve seen, we don’t get much background for the central protagonists. Yet somehow, I still found myself concerned for them here. Most of that has to do with the “one shot” editing/ cinematography work helmed by Lee Smith and Roger Deakins, respectively. I felt like I was apart of the war itself, especially this…
