Ah, cool twist! I sure didn't see that one coming! I loved how the idea behind this episode was so scathing towards death penalty, entertainment and the voyeuristic aspect of our society... exacerbated even more nowadays, with all social media. Pretty smart!
My favorite episode from the second season of BLACK MIRROR. I loved this episode its premise and storytelling looks like an upgrade version of THE TWILIGHT ZONE episode. WHITE BEAR is thrilling, exciting, and intriguing. At first - I thought this episode is just a survival story. Then, came that twisted ending. F*ck, I didn't see that coming. It's a sick, yet mindf*ck ending. Also, the ending is beyond satisfying...
I was most disturbed by this episode. For one, it resembled some of my nightmares. At least the first part. But then, the society tries to find justification in dealing cruelty for the sake of justice and this feels more scary than the cruelty itself.
So disturbing and complex. So many layers to uncover, and the results are so rewarding! The mysterious mood of the dystopian world, allied to a sort of faint cyberpunk aesthetics, made up for a pretty compelling viewing that leaves plenty of room for discussion.
