The rest of the trailer looks like a thrillingly bizarre mashup of Mulholland Drive and Black Mirror (another mind-bending sci-fi series on Netflix). All 10 episodes were directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, who helmed the entire first season of HBO’s True Detective as well as the critically acclaimed Netflix film Beasts of No Nation.

Films and shows that explore the inner recesses of the mind are perfect pop-culture fodder for this moment. It’s the type of entertainment that makes message boards, Twitter conversations, and Reddit threads go crazy with theories and in-depth breakdowns.

As the outside world has become harder to parse, entertainment has looked inward at the self, investigating the mind to figure out what really makes us tick. Black Mirror has devoted several episodes to this, including “White Christmas,” “San Junipero,” and most recently “USS Callister,” the wonderful Star Trek parody that takes place almost entirely in a simulated reality. It’s probably not a surprise that these are some of the anthology show’s best episodes—it turns out stories about the human psyche are fascinating to watch. That much is clear even to the Netflix computer algorithm.
