Benjamin Reid's rating of the film Black Mirror: Hang the DJ

The humour and acting were great and made for a refreshing and somewhat topical rom com. Always good to see a lighter Black Mirror. I feel like some of the themes of consent and gender roles should have been explored a bit more instead of just hinted at. Some of the cgi was super shoddy. I also really hated the ending despite its originality and use of the Smiths. Maybe just a bit too smart and smug for its own good.
