Black Mirror (2010)

The 21st Century British TV Messiah, Proclamation Of Netflix’s Arrival, & Modernized Successor To The Twilight Zone, BM is a dark, hyperimaginative, phantasmagoric-yet-realistic, human-crux, anthology-repopularizing, sharply-written/executed collection of dystopian tales on the metaphysical techno-paranoia zeitgeist of modernized civilization. 9.4/10.

Plot Synopsis: A series of stand-alone dramas — sharp, suspenseful, satirical tales that explore technological nightmares — “Black Mirror” is a contemporary reworking of “The Twilight Zone” with stories that tap into the collective unease about the modern world, particularly regarding both intended and unintended consequences of new technologies and the effect they have on society and individuals. Each story features its own cast of unique characters, including stars like Bryce Dallas Howard (“The Help”), Alice Eve, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Cullen and Jerome Flynn (“Game of Thrones”). Joe Wright, Dan Trachtenberg, and James Watkins are among the featured directors.
