    Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

    ★★★½

    yeah, it’s cool. enjoyed the concept, though it could have been ironed out a little bit. it’s slightly difficult to talk about this because i don’t know if i picked the right path, or the wrong path, or what this even is? i do wish that it would actually end at each ending, though, for i was left unsatisfied after picking random choices over and over again, not realizing that those constituted the “ending,” only to be shocked when a choice i accidentally made took me all the way to the credits. flawed but fun.

    ★★★★

    so cute and light. probably the nicest heist movie I’ve ever seen. very impressive cinematography and pacing, feels very smooth and never oversteps its limitations in terms of scope and plausibility. if this does turn out to be Redford’s swan song, it sure is a good one.

    theater usher: so did you like the movie

    me, my voice cracking and crumpled tissues falling out of my pockets: ʸᵉᵃʰ ᶦᵗ ʷᵃˢ ᵒᵏ

    theater usher: excuse me?

    me, sobbing and melting into the ground as my spirit leaves my physical body: oh my god i'm so sorry

    THE film of a lifetime. so silently impactful and grand. it's all about time.
