Making choices was pretty seamless, and it wasn't as disruptive as I thought it would be. While you can kinda tell when the movie has switched to the scene based on your choice, it's very clean.
I did find that some of my choices led the film to work itself back to a previous fork in the road, which forced me to rewatch a scene again. Not a deal breaker, just annoying. I know this is just the beginning, but I like where this is going. Like stated by the OP, this was a great pairing between Netflix and Black Mirror.
(also really dig the metal head shout out. One of my favorite episodes).
It's so crazy. Reading through the comments in this reddit thread shows how deep the rabbit hole goes. Only visit if you've gone through a good portion of the movie paths and/or don't mind the spoilers.

A interactive movie that lets you control the action where the main character contemplates not being in control all the while the movie itself forces your actions so that you're not really in control. Then you're asked to contemplate whether you're in control.
The loops and layers upon layers and 4th and 5th wall breaks. I enjoyed it.

I would describe this as similar to looking at 360 degree pictures...it's cool for about 5 seconds, but after that you want to see the image that the photographer intended for you to see rather than stare at random background objects that aren't really that interesting.
This style of a movie doesn't speak to me at all--In the end, I want to see the filmmakers vision on screen, not a series of side adventures. But I didn't know that going into this--because I've never experienced a movie like this before--but if you're into all the easter eggs and such, this will speak to you, but if you want to watch a story, you'll find this tiring/boring/etc. I hope this was a one off for black mirror, because it's a very good show.
