September 7 – 13
SORRY TO BOTHER YOU
In an alternate reality of present-day Oakland, Calif., telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) finds himself in a macabre universe after he discovers a magical key that leads to material glory. As Green’s career begins to take off, his friends and co-workers organize a protest against corporate oppression.
Dir: Boots Riley / 2018 / US / 105 min
“It works fine as an outrageous comedy, but the perceptive commentary will likely give it staying power. This is the fearless satire that America desperately needs right now.” – J.R. Kinnard, Seattle Times
“[Riley’s] film has a distinct look that ranges from pop-art bright to demonically dark, and Stanfield’s lightly absurdist performance holds it all together.” – Kathy Fennessy, The Stranger
“An adrenalin-shot of a comedy and a fearless dissection of identity politics, corporate malevolence, and the American tendency to look the other way when confronted with horror.” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
