What Does It Take To Get To The Top?

DIRECTED BY: Boots Riley
WRITTEN BY: Boots Riley
STARRING: Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson and Steven Yeun

SYNOPSIS: In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a universe of greed. (IMDB)



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
