Critic reviews for Be Right Back
One of the interesting things about this episode is that it shows us a character meeting a technology for the first time, rather than one who has been living with it for a while.
The latest episode of Black Mirror, Be Right Back, is both a haunting vision of the future, and of what our relationship with technology could become.
"Be Right Back" combines all the best bits of a Black Mirror episode: a crushingly human storyline, seamlessly integrated technology and some masterful construction in a haunting soundtrack and brilliant pacing...
There was a lesson to be learned here about moving on and not hanging on to the past -- and what we share of ourselves online -- but it got buried under one far-fetched twist too many.
The Cinematography is perfect for the mood of the writing as is the sound design and editing. These elements add to the cold lonely world that Martha is slowly but unknowingly devising around her.
