You ever watch a film knowing it takes some sort of crazy turn? You were pretty much buckled in, right? Mild surprise, not apocalyptic shock? Well, gang, you‘re not prepared for Sorry to Bother You. It’s not just the third act that’s original – the whole thing bristles with wild newness. Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out) stars as a black man who is employed as a telemarketer and it’s full of more comedy, satire, sci-fi, anger and radical class-consciousness than such a prosaic-sounding premise strictly should be.
