This videographic criticism piece on the Black Mirror episode “Hang the DJ” (season 4, episode 4) explores ideas of love, society, dystopia, technology, autonomy, and more.

The analysis follows an inverted pyramid structure, discussing themes of the series first, then the particular episode, and lastly a specific sequence from the episode.

The episode gets us wondering, “Is love as we know it meant to follow a formula?”, and then tears that idea to the ground. I explore this thought in my criticism.
