Rated R

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, black telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe of “power- calling” that leads to material glory. But the upswing in Cassius’ career raises serious red flags with his girlfriend, Detroit (Tessa Thompson), a performance artist and minimum-wage striver who’s secretly part of a Banksy-style activist collective. As his friends and co-workers organize in protest of corporate oppression, Cassius falls under the spell of his company’s cocaine-snorting CEO Steve Lift (Armie Hammer), who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams. A surreal comedy about rising up and selling out, Sorry to Bother You marks the feature-film debut of Boots Riley — founder and front man of the Bay Area hip-hop collective The Coup — whose evocative story-raps formed the basis for the film’s unique, feverishly inventive screenplay. The film also features performances from Omari Hardwick, Jermaine Fowler, Steven Yeun, Danny Glover and Terry Crews, as well as the voice-over talent of Patton Oswalt, David Cross and Rosario Dawson.

An absurdist, startlingly original Molotov cocktail through the pane glass window of Hollywood, Sorry to Bother You is a riot, the year’s craziest comedy and the most demented call to arms in memory.

If you had to boil the unruly inventiveness of Sorry to Bother You down to one sentence, it could be this: Doing the right thing always involves risk. Get ready.
Stephanie Zacharek | TIME Magazine | Full review

…director/writer Boots Riley took the rulebook of script writing and bent it to his own will. Reality and real dialogue can be included in fantasy; it’s how you write it. Sorry To Bother You proudly marries reality and fantasy and lets its weird flag fly. And it’s a better film because of it.
