By allowing to see the matter from two different sides, it manages to present justifiable point of view for each one. A plot twist is required to be able to shift from victim's perspective to hunter's perspective, which comes of as a plausible but cheap gimmick. Moral ambiguity in each scenario is the strongest portion in otherwise average episode for this TV show's standards.
Questo episodio è notevole, non è facile indovinare cosa sa succedendo, sai che c'è qualcosa che non quadra, ma non sai bene cosa. Comunque...posso capire il motivo che ha spinto ad ideare questa sadica punizione, ma non penso che parteciperei mai ad un "gioco" di questo tipo.
"Justice without force is powerless; force WITHOUT Justice is tyrannical."- Pascal ... Theres a lot more to be said about this episode than just a make believe Purge masquerading as a sentence for a little girls murder- when in actuality appears to be just a glorified Six Flags ride. But it is late as fuck here and I grow weary. Plus Mubi is ass with the space imitations with the laughably low character count.
0. The parable of the world as a punitive fascist fact, with such glorious backgrounds as "The Most Dangerous Game" (Schoedsack and Cooper), "M", both versions, or "Fury" (Fritz Lang), finds, again, a contemporary antihuman version, spectacular and speculative, where the punitive factor is strengthened by its suitability to the stylistic and staging options. The revolution isn't televised.
Arguably the most controversial episode in the series, this one lingered with me after I'd finished watching it. The interpretations are endless - from media lynching to our innate blood thirst for retribution. Whatever you see in it, I think it manages to intrigue.
The best in the second series, it's a bit predictable, but the whole revelation in the end was still astonishing. Probably one of the best Black Mirror episode that questioning ambiguity of the internet, the 'virtual' identity we put up, and the justification of hating.
