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
In the beginning of the movie a character named Colin Ritman programs what appears to be ZX Spectrum home computer. This is possibly an homage to legendary Spectrum game programmer Jon Ritman. See more »
One of Stefan's choices is between a record album of Tangerine Dream or Isao Tomita's The Bermuda Triangle. When he chooses the Tomita album, you see him go home and take a standard black vinyl LP out of its sleeve and play it on his turntable. However, the particular record he purchased was actually pressed in a pink color, (not the usual black) to represent the corals around Bermuda. 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 »
Bandersnatch feels like something completely new. It was an awesome experience. You are the factor that can alter character's story for better or worse. Even the supporting characters are influenced by the decisions you make. There's a different end for everyone depending on your choices. Netflix says that there are 5 "main endings" with multiple variants of each. When you watch it again after watching, it makes you feel like you're watching a different movie. Netflix has found a way to make it a deeply personal experience. You feel responsible for the character's choices. It's really fun to have the options in the hands of the audience. And for a first attempt, Netflix succeeds. You should watch it. - I saw people who couldn't get the message the movie wanted to give. I recommend that they watch carefully. 9/10
