White Christmas – Black Mirror, Temporada 2 ( 2013 ): capítulo dirigido por Carl Tibbetts, de la serie creada por Charlie Booker, y protagonizado por Jon Hamm, Rafe Spall, Oona Chaplin, Rasmus Hardiker, Natalia Tena, Janet Montgomery, Robin Weaver y Ken Drury. Si me preguntas por Black Mirror, te daré la referencia de este capítulo, que redacta justamente lo que quiere transmitir la serie. Impactante y simplemente brillante. Análisis: Jon Hamm y Rafe Spall hacen de este capítulo una obra maestra actual, donde vemos una crítica brutal a la tortura, al acoso, a la obsesión, al adulterio, a los celos, a la desconfianza, etc… Es un capítulo impactante porque desde un principio te prenden en un "interrogatorio" o "charla" entre ambos personajes que intentan aclarar como las nuevas tecnologías afectaron sus vidas. Es tan bien planteada la trama que el capítulo de 1 hora y 13 minutos aproximadamente pasa como una flecha por todo lo que nos envuelve. El mejor de la segunda temporada en cuanto a todo lo que genera y consiste. Nota personal: 9 #WhiteChristmas #BlackMirror #CharlieBrooker #CarlTibbetts #JonHamm #RafeSpall #OonaChaplin #NataliaTena #RasmusHardiker #JanetMontgomery #RobinWeaver #KenDrury #serie #instagram #Netflix #PCReviewBlackMirror #PCReviewWhiteChristmas #UnitedKingdom
