From the Vaults of Streaming Hell: Alexandria…Why? Sorry to Bother You" is about a telemarketer who becomes a superstar, for a price. Watched On the flipside is the comedy of Squeeze attempting to organize a union for something like telemarketing, only for the film to point out that such a concept is only funny in a nation that has already become desensitized to the near-total collapse of unions in the country. by Anti-Corruption Digest | Jul 18, 2018 | Governance and Ethics | 0 comments. Later, as Cash stumbles across an elaborate and horrific conspiracy, the film kicks into overdrive, plunging the image into deep, throbbing pulses of color that make for an ad-hoc neo-noir/sci-fi horror on top of the already chaotic satire. ℎ is using Letterboxd to share film reviews and lists with friends. Five Years Later: The Best Films of 2014!! Neatness may count in the Neatness Olympics, but in movies it’s an overrated commodity. Sorry To Bother You is a masterpiece! It's a provocative, serious, ridiculous, screwy concoction about whiteface, cultural code-switching, African-American identities and twisted new forms of wage slavery, beyond previously known ethical limits. This lurch into violence does not come from nowhere; Riley establishes a grimly satiric alternate present in which media culture has collapsed into extended ads (and news reports doubling as such) for Worry Free, an expanding labor allocation company that pays workers in room and board, and grotesque mass entertainment such as a game show where contestants are pummeled and debased. It's a science fiction allegory, though the science fiction angle emerges late in the game. It’s a provocative, serious, ridiculous, screwy concoction about whiteface, cultural code-switching, African-American identities and twisted new forms of wage slavery, beyond previously known ethical limits.

No means were given to actually care for them besides stereotypical millennials problems and even with that it felt forced along with its social commentary beating me across the head. Tessa Thompson plays Detroit, who also works as a street-corner sign-twirler, and here she continues her unerring streak of late. That spoof of devolved mass culture is one of the film’s numerous comic asides, which pile up so heavily around the main plot that it’s easy to lose track of the sheer ambition of Riley’s list of warped social ills.

Having set up this straightforward moral quandary, the film abruptly shifts into something more ominous. Neatness? Still, the doldrums and relentless failure of telemarketing rapidly sap Cash’s energy, until one day a coworker (Danny Glover) advises him to win over clients with his “white voice,” which he defines not merely as a more formal speech but a projection of calm and subtle authority. Yes, it's ultimately worth seeing, if for no other reason than Riley has taken a stab at doing something different. Bleh: I mean... Blanche raped an underage boy... she didn't just seduce a paperboy...... Angie: Not a bad write up ..good read however to say Oasis stood for nothing..Amazing h... Me peepeebutt: Wow. Premiering earlier this year at Sundance, the film comes from rapper and musician Boots Riley of the funk-tinged, Oakland-based hip-hop band the Coup, who makes his feature debut here as screenwriter and director. 2018. Film data from TMDb. Conventional is overrated. Riley’s freewheeling comic imagination belongs to itself, first and foremost, the way Michel Gondry’s movies belong to Michel Gondry, and Spike Jonze movies belong to Spike Jonze, and Alex Cox’s “Repo Man,” which operated on a similar collision between realism and the fantastic, belongs to itself alone. He can be found on Twitter at @notjustmovies. On the shortlist, undoubtedly, is writer-director Boots Riley's Sorry To Bother You, a critic's darling that bombed in theaters this past summer.Yes, it's bold and unpredictable. Green’s played by the terrific Lakeith Stanfield, Darius on “Atlanta” and the straw-hatted harbinger of trouble in “Get Out.” The job Green seeks, and finds, requires working the phones at a generically equipped facility somewhere in Oakland, Calif. With his lover, a visual and performance artist named Detroit, Green lives in the garage of the house owned by his cash-strapped uncle (Terry Crews). Yet as Cash’s career soars, he finds himself pressured by a rabble-rousing coworker, Squeeze (Steven Yeun), who wants the telemarketers to unionize. Seriously it becomes more of a joke as it moves on. Yes it’s vibrant and minces it’s thoughts but at the end, not even convinced itself feels very sorry...to bother you. I’m going to have to be very weary to critical acclaimed movie nowadays as they come off too much ego boost, overrated or critics who only know two rating: fucking loved it! Which I guess any film can nab nowadays that preaches what the young moviegoer mind bandwagons on social media. This film as popish as its style is with amazing set designs is SO sloppy with its plot that I found it not interesting as it carried along. Required fields are marked *.

Review: Sci-fi and satire meet in ‘Sorry to Bother You’ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune Published 7:02 a.m. Scene One: Cassius “Cash” Green applies for a job. Prince: Sign ‘O’ the Times (Super Deluxe Edition). The intensity of the image detail combines with the mostly static images to emphasize the pressure of stasis on Cassius “Cash” Green (Lakeith Stanfield), a poor man living in his uncle’s (Terry Crews) garage in Oakland. As Squeeze’s protests gain traction, Cash must enter the office each morning with a police escort who gleefully clubs striking workers attempting to prevent them from passing. I’m so, so sorry, but I think Star Wars is overrated. Join here. I didn’t really find any humor on here to chuckle at which stinks cause I was wanting a good laugh to start my day.
