Sorry to Bother You

"An absurdist, startlingly original Molotov cocktail through the pane glass window of Hollywood, 'Sorry to Bother You' is a riot, the year's craziest comedy and the most demented call to arms in memory." - Detroit News

"Exploding with infectious originality, Boots Riley’s Sorry to Bother You may be the most wonderfully bizarre film of 2018. If you dig the handmade surrealism of Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry or the antiestablishment weirdness of Repo Man, then this one is undoubtedly for you.

"Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out) stars as a down-on-his-luck Oakland striver named Cassius Green who takes an entry-level job as a telemarketer to scrape together enough money to live in his uncle’s garage with his performance-artist girlfriend, Detroit (a luminous Tessa Thompson). But rather than getting stuck in another dead-end gig, Cassius immediately vaults to the top of the ladder after adopting a 'white voice' (courtesy of David Cross) on the phone. Soon, he’s anointed as a 'power caller,' riding a golden elevator up to the corporate penthouse, where he cozies up to the backslapping, sarong-wearing CEO (a deliriously tongue-in-cheek Armie Hammer).

"Cassius’ newfound success and the ridiculous perks that come with it lead to an existential crisis, pitting his keeping-it-real black identity against his bougie new whitewashed one. And Stanfield, with his dazed, deadpan delivery, invites you into the absurdity of his can’t-win dilemma. If all of this sounds…odd, then I’ve done my job. Still, it pales next to the wiggy, WTF flights-of-fancy detours Riley has up his Marxist merry-prankster sleeve. Sorry to Bother You is a timely, scalpel-sharp social satire with big laughs and even bigger ideas." - Entertainment Weekly
