FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
Sorry to Bother You is an ambitious and original dramedy that takes a while to digest its intricately built alternate version of society. While it may not reside in our world, it becomes grounded thanks to some charismatic performances, smart dialogue, relevant, blunt commentary and stylish direction making this story one to bother watching.
★★★★★★★★½☆ 8.5/10 – Recommend
