Black Mirror has always been one to mess with its audience but Charlie Brooker has created a complete game changer with Bandersnatch. This is a choose-your-own-adventure, so what actually happens on your screen is completely down to you.
Fionn Whitehead stars in the episode as Stefan, a wannabe game creator who heads to Tuckersoft Games to pitch his game to be sold to the market. There, he meets Will Poulter’s Colin Rickman, the man behind games including Metl Hedd and Nosedyve – which for those familiar with Black Mirror lore, may recognise.
Within ten minutes of the film starting we found ourselves heading back to the beginning as we’re essentially instructed to not choose the path we originally went for. While Stefan continues to function as the lead character in our game, he becomes aware of our presence and attempts to stop himself from following our instructions.
