What have I seen on Netflix? Bandersnatch


Before yesterday I finished watching Bandersnatch on Netflix and the truth is that I was very surprised when the Playstation controller (I see Netflix through a Playstation III just use it for that) began to vibrate and wondering if I had understood how the film worked, I said yes, but the truth is that I had no idea, although when I had to choose whether to have breakfast Frosties or Sugar Puff, I understood what the film was about.
I immediately thought of Julio Cortazar's novel "Rayuela", which has a similar scheme, in which you can read the chapters in the order you create and their endings will be different.
Netflix has made with Bandersnatch a risky bet, a proposal that many will like and others not so much. I'm in the middle. I admit that I liked the film, especially its interactive approach and that, somehow, you are part of the film and that the endings depend on your decisions, although the interactive game, to me at least, I get tired. I have to admit that I'm not much of a game, and maybe that's where you have to look for the answer.
On the other hand the Black Mirror series has its stamp of identity and that is none other than future technologies and their consequences and Bandersnatch moves away from this approach, although if we spin very fine we could find some fit in that stamp of identity.
So Bandersnatch is a film that has to be seen, there is no doubt about that and its lace in the series is another singing.
