Lisa Fremont’s review published on Letterboxd:
I am 100% not exaggerating when I say I don't think I've ever felt this uncomfortable. I have a high tolerance towards disturbing films but this affected me in a way that I don't think anything else has. So visceral and grotesque without ever actually showing anything.
National Anthem certainly has some interesting things to say about humans' desensitization by the media and so on. It's masterful as both a series episode and a short film, which ranks it pretty high on my list as is the case with all of my favorite Black Mirrors. Were those end-credit scenes necessary though? Absolutely not.
