Black Mirror: Bandersnatch ★★

All the "interactivity" of Telltale Games and the subtlety of David Cage. This isn't the worst episode of Black Mirror but it is the most annoyingly meta. 

It's twists can be genuinely striking but it is held back by painful implementation. The choices are never anything more than cosmetic or inessential. And anything that might actually create a branching path is either underwhelming or loops back around for you to makes the "right choice." The end result is less like a maze and more like a crazy straw.
