Sorry to Bother You
February 10, 2024 @ 7:00 PM PST
Surrealism meets satire in Oakland. Boots Riley’s black comedy Sorry to Bother You chronicles a hapless telemarketer, Cassius Green (LaKeith Stanfield), whose sudden burgeoning success in the workplace is directly proportional to his alienation from his coworkers; his girlfriend, Detroit (Tessa Thompson); and himself. Critic Emily Yoshida observed: “This is ultra-progressive, radical storytelling that manages to stay totally joyful and inventive throughout. Riley manages to both never come off as taking the thing too seriously, but he also verbalizes his intersectional, anti-capitalist ideals in visually unforgettable fashion.”
