Some say this is a hysterical overreaction to social media, some feel it like Christmas dinner... I'm in the latter camp, watching Lacy's descent into the "lower depths" of the fictional shlocky rating system everyone is tied to is cathartic, as she goes from bad to worse in an absurd situation (no shortage of those, these days), the actual human connection, at the end, however ambivalent, marks this as a top episode
not profound cuz content(even lames make antiSocial media now) but completely profound&beautiful in ability to temporarily wane the gnawing bite of social stress as well as crush that incessant temptation to improve ones image. And with the magic and charm of a mothers love. The ending scene is kush (blue dream/ sativa dominant) level self reflect/happiness/truth/bliss. in conclusion: fuk what u think (in a good way)
BLACK MIRROR - once again succeed to capture the dark side of advanced technology. NOSEDIVE has an interesting premise. It's about the world in the near future. A world where rating-system has taken the whole social life. Bryce Dallas Howard's acting is superb in NOSEDIVE. She really nailed it as a woman who is rating-maniac. I didn't satisfy with its ending. I wish there's more redemptions in it. It's worth watching
For the most part it was really well executed. What began as very polished tale, ends up with unsarphed edges and a messy ending. I have to compliment the aesthetic which was the strongest point, as well has the comment that it does to our virtually social communication nowadays. For me, it was probably one of the most memorable episodes so far.
