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

Considering how much "Black Mirror's" reputation has traded on deep cynicism and nihilistic punchline endings, it's been something of a surprise to discover over the course of the last two Netflix seasons that the show also excels at melancholy romanticism. "Hang the DJ" is filtered through "The Prisoner," a clever exploration of internet dating culture that owes a great debt to its leads' chemistry.
