Boots Riley's Sorry to Bother You is such a bizarre trip of a film -- important without being preachy and flat-out entertaining as hell. Lakeith Stanfield's performance as the newbie telemarketer mastering his "white voice" is absolutely outstanding and one of the highlights of the film, along with Riley's crazy script and unique, stylish directing. It's perfectly paced, wholly original and filled with insane surprises that you (seriously...) won't see coming.

Visually imaginative, too, with a great use of effects considering the indie budget.

I would say that the humor was unique and that the delivery of every jokes and satires are well executed. Production value more than enough to entertain. The cinematography could be improved though. But overall direction was solid. Using different techniques and devices worked really well to send the message the script wanted to convey. There is so much in this film that it deserves a critical response from the audience. I love the inclu...
