Renton47's rating of the film Black Mirror: Hang the DJ

The ending sabotages it, raising too many questions about consent + awareness. This really the best means for this end? It has now dipped into the well of violated simulations too many times, if it hadn't already. Most insidious in the way it plays the audience with broad romance, vague anti-system rhetoric, solipsistic satisfactions.
