Black Mirror: White Christmas

Black Mirror: White Christmas

Channel 4

A future in which people can be blocked in real life just like on social media โ€“ that’s just one of the dystopian themes in the latest episode of Black Mirror, the first one in feature length. As with the six that came before, Charlie Brooker does an excellent job in dissecting the present by extrapolating. If you knew Black Mirror, these 75 minutes are just as good as you’d have hoped for. If you’re new to Black Mirror: Welcome to this brilliantly creepy, exceptionally thought-provoking ride.
