'Black Mirror': How Jodie Foster and Rosemarie DeWitt Made Their Story Personal

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the Black Mirror season four episode, "ArkAngel."]

Though Black Mirror is an anthology comprised of standalone stories, one of the new season four episodes sticks out from the rest in an unassuming way.

"ArkAngel," directed by Jodie Foster and starring Rosemarie DeWitt, doesn't bring with it the typical futuristic, hyper-technology backdrop that can easily be spotted in the episodes of Charlie Brooker's dystopian series. Instead, there is only one gadget on display in this intimate story of a single mother (DeWitt) who is desperate to keep her child safe: the ArkAngel, an experimental...

Black Mirror Season 4's Rosemarie DeWitt, Jodie Foster Reveal Their Favorite Episodes
Stars, they're just like us. They play favorites, but then can't remember names of episodes. Rosemarie DeWitt, who appears in Black Mirror season four's "Arkangel," and that episode's director Jodie Foster, both have favorite episodes of the technology-slanted anthology series. "I like the darkest ones possible," Foster revealed to E! News. Foster cited "The Waldo Moment" and "White Christmas" as two favorites, along with "Shut Up and Dance," which is a lot like her episode she said, because it's "very grounded and feels like an indie film. I think that's one of the most powerful ones." For DeWitt, she likes "Be Right Back," the episode...

4.2 Arkangel

Jodie Foster’s first directing gig was on George Romero’s creepy anthology TV show Tales From The Darkside. In 1988, she directed Do Not Open This Box, a sort of revisited version of the old Brothers Grimm tale The Fisherman and his Wife about an avaricious woman who abuses a supernatural gift, and her long-suffering husband. It was a morality story warning against greed and urging viewers to be careful what they wish for.

Almost thirty years later, Foster has come full circle with Black Mirror episode Arkangel. Here, once again, she directs an instalment of a sinister anthology series that poses its viewers an ethical problem.

Black Mirror Season 4 Review

Like dipping your hand into a bag of liquorice allsorts, every episode of Black Mirror is a different shape, a different texture, a different flavor, but each installment reflects a central anxiety: how might technology trap us rather than set us free? To answer this, Black Mirror cleverly favors subtlety over bombast, almost always preferring to explore this question via small-scale drama as opposed to overblown sci-fi space opera. Even with Netflix money flowing through the kitty, writer and producer Charlie Brooker arrows in on individual people and their particular anxieties rather than getting carried away with techno-melodrama.

By virtue of being an anthology, half the fun is debating your favorite episode. For instance, the Emmy-award-winning “San Junipero” is the critical darling of season 3 but I much prefer “Shut up and Dance” from that series, a savage game of cat and mouse between a wide-eyed teen and a hacking cartel.
