Kriss, Phenom and Shanna review Boots Riley's Sorry to Bother You. This film is getting great reviews and for good reason. There is so much commentary and little messages sprinkled throughout this film. From the obvious in your face messages of corporate greed and the lack of worker rights to the smaller visual nods and messages in the background. Sorry to Bother You packs in a lot unpack and you're going to want to see it multiple times to get it all in. The film progressively gets weirder and weirder all the way up to the end but it feels natural because recent real life events have shown us how easy the "new normal" can become.
We attempt to tackle some of the topics and themes we saw in this film but there's so much more. Run, do not walk to see this film.
Oh and Tessa Thompson is a Goddess and we will watch anything she's in.
In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe. Directed by Boots Riley and starring stars Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Danny Glover, Steven Yeun and Armie Hammer
