Sorry to Bother You

Sorry to Bother You

In an "alternate," present-day version of Oakland, Calif., telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield from "Atlanta" and Get Out) discovers the magical key to success is adopting a "white guy" voice (supplied by David Cross). This leads him to a bizarre corporate world of money and power—as lorded over by Armie Hammer's kooky, coke-snorting CEO. This unapologetically confrontational comedy/fantasy—a debut writing-direcing effort from rapper Boots Riley—plays like the cutting social satire of Putney Swope as filtered through the oddball lens of directors Michel Gondry (The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich). FULL REVIEW: Upward mobility gets weird in off-kilter comedy by Devin D. O’Leary (7/19/2018). 105 minutes R.
