Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
1984. Stefan is developing a computer game based on the book 'Bandersnatch', a novel where you get to make choices and this determines the story. He has an opportunity to take his game to Tuckersoft, a software company, and have them release it. However, the more he works on the game the more his life emulates the game, with choices being made that are out of his control. Stefan appears to be going insane.Written by
When Stefan's father drives him to the psychiatrist (after pretending they were going to have lunch at a pub), we hear the XTC song "Making Plans for Nigel", including the words "We're only making plans for Nigel / We only want what's best for him". This reflects Stefan's situation in the scene, as his father is deciding what's best for him by tricking him into a therapy session. It also reflects Stefan's status as a pawn of the viewer; the viewer makes plans for him. See more »
Both of the programmers are seen to be working exclusively in ZX BASIC. By 1984, very few established software houses used BASIC as a coding language - most worked in Z80 assembler. Colin Ritman's games in particular showed a fluidity and responsiveness that would be very hard to achieve with the use of assembly language. See more »
The past is immutable, Stefan. No matter how painful it is, we can't change things. We can't choose differently with hindsight. We all have to learn to accept that.

There is no single narrative or version. There are five different endings, each with multiple pathways to them. See more »
This is groundbreaking. Can't really get a grasp on it. Who ever wrote this mapping is a genius. This is the future and Netflix owns it. Need to watch it again and choose sugar puffs instead of frosties. This is like a video game but a movie and makes u wonder so many things on the user pathway.
Mind blow! Netflix treading into new waters. I wonder what I missed by making the wrong decisions or right ones. There must be so many different endings....or not. I won't tell you mine. Fun ride! Want more of these. Maybe for a horror film?
