Ghastly grins – reflections in a Black Mirror

black-mirror-masksExcited to hear that not only is there a third season of Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker’s dystopian television series, but that it’s also going to be screened at Toronto International Film Festival. I’ve been a fan of the man ever since I watched Dead Set, and I admire what Brooker has done with these stand-alone tales. I find them to be jaw-droppingly clever, disturbingly hilarious, and – if we don’t watch out –  truly prophetic.
