Bandersnatch (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The first proper foray into interactive films, Netflix’s Bandersnatch is a really unique experience that enables the viewer to control the outcome of the film. It’s a great concept but one that doesn’t quite always work. Beyond the (actually pretty cool) gimmick the story is pretty flimsy and some choices actually have very minimal outcome. But as an idea and as a glimpse to where interactive TV could do its’ pretty groundbreaking. So one for the future, Bandersnatch is ahead of its time.
