Entry Summary:
The groundbreaking drama Mr. Robot has become a global phenomenon, tapping into the cultural zeitgeist of corporate distrust, internet-age paranoia and youth-led revolution unlike anything else on television. The series centers on Elliot Alderson, a vigilante hacker suffering from debilitating social anxiety, whose world begins to unravel when he is recruited by Mr. Robot, the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group bent on sparking a revolution against corporate greed. Elliot’s mental state renders him the ultimate unreliable narrator; unable to distinguish between the real world and delusion, Elliot takes viewers on a mind-bending journey through the show’s spiraling narrative.
The Mr. Robot VR stars Rami Malek as the anxiety-addled vigilante hacker, Elliot Alderson and takes viewers on a flashback journey with Elliot as he recalls the painful memory of his first date with love interest, Shayla. The atmospheric writing and direction create a poignant, cinematic experience infused with inescapable melancholy as the characters visit the Coney Island Boardwalk and Wonder Wheel, which have become staples of the show. Through innovative VR techniques, using nearly 40 cameras and multiple camera systems, the piece reveals Elliot’s vulnerabilities and insecurities in ways that viewers can both see and viscerally feel, evoking empathy far beyond what traditional TV allows. Elliot’s voice-over immerses fans intimately into his memory and masterful sound design allows viewers to feel like they are really inside Elliot's head. Claustrophobic camera placement, uncomfortable framing and jarring jump cuts reveal Elliot’s anxiety and paranoia with the show’s signature moody elegance.
