Sorry to Bother You

Tuesday, September 11, 2018, 07:00pm

This repeat is an exception to the normal repeat pattern

September 7–11 (times vary)

18A, coarse language, sexual content
Dir: Boots Riley, US, 111 min. Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler

“Exploding with infectious originality, 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 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. 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 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, 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.”—Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
