    Abstract:
    Black Mirror’s Bandersnatch has brought interactive film to the forefront of ludo-entertainment discourse. Released through the Netflix entertainment platform in December 2018, the film features a non-linear script that the viewer guides through a series of choices. By virtue of design, Bandersnatch places a larger emphasis on narratological elements of the interactive experience than gameplay. This paper deconstructs narrative transformations as modeled by David Lewin’s connected-operation network model, functions of music in interactive media, and morality in mediatized spaces for a comprehensive close reading of Bandersnatch as writer Charlie Brooker’s commentary on free will.
