san junipero is everything i have ever wanted and more. it was there when i was trying to figure out myself, it was there when i was coming to terms with myself, and it was there when i was finally comfortable with myself. san junipero relieves, soothes, delights, and gives hope.
The ending of this installment was kind of a plot-twist, considering the whole spectrum of Black Mirror. This has all the elements of romance movie, yet it feels unsettling at some points. It raises questions and makes you wonder. One of the finest of the series.
Superior episode that uses nostalgia and existence in a way where one complements the other. And they are presented through seductive ride of retro Saturday nights - where everything feels like it's been done before but never really wanting to end. Pure emotions and little eroticism are accompanied with appropriate music that culminates with the smash hit "Heaven Is A Place On Earth".
Is it me or - this is the first time I met a happy ending in the BLACK MIRROR series. I really, really loved with the concept of SAN JUNIPERO. No, I won't tell you what it is. Because if I do, it would be a huge spoiler. SAN JUNIPERO is like an upgrade version of A NICE PLACE TO VISIT from THE TWILIGHT ZONE. But with an optimistic ending, actually. Damn, I wish I have a girlfriend like Mackenzie Davis' character...
Writing LGBT+ drama that's selflessly inclusive is easier said than done. All too often it feels like the community must be proud or even grateful for boxes being ticked regardless of how well it's implemented. Fortunately, San Junipero generally avoids cliché and stereotypical tropes in favour of genuine emotional depth, thanks to a sensitively written script and stellar performances from its two female leads.
