Review: Sorry To Bother You


Accomplished writer and rapper Boots Riley arrives on the filmmaking scene with a supernova-sized bang with his Sundance hit Sorry To Bother You — which was also produced out of the Sundance Lab. Riley weaves a twisted and scathing tale of corporate greed and racial identity that is so expressionist and darkly hilarious that it should leave the likes of David Lynch and Charlie Kaufman swooning. Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, and Armie Hammer give dynamite performances in a film that prods at some of our culture’s most deeply-seeded issues with fresh insights, profound absurdity, and unapologetic creativity. It’s one of the most truly original, balls-to-the-wall, take-no-prisoners kind of films in years with a soundtrack that will stay bumping in your head for days. Grade: A.
