This weekend, I finally took the time to watch the new Netflix movies Bandersnatch and Bird Box. While I have to say that I like the latter more, Bandersnatch raised some interesting questions, as Black Mirror usually does. I will stay away from any spoilers, but as an interactive movie, you get to decide which path the movie goes down. At a certain point, someone even says that nothing is permanent and everything can be reversed. It made me question if there are situations in my past I wish I would’ve made a different decision.
Something that came to mind specifically was my choice not to go to art school at age 15. I don’t know why I decided against it but I think I was scared of change. If I had made the change I would’ve saved myself from two years of bullying and eventually still switching schools later on.
But who knows if I’d actually been happier down that path…
Have you seen Bandersnatch and if so, how did you like it?
Are there any things you’d like to change about your past if given the choice?
