Cassius, an African American striver living in Oakland, works at a telemarketing firm. He’s told to “stick to the script” but soon his rise, fall and bizarre sideways bounces take him on a Faustian journey, trading his integrity for professional and material gain. A satirical portrait of a young man looking for pleasure and meaning, money and sex, while navigating an inhumane but also tolerable social order. USA, 2018, 111 minutes, rated R

“Boots Riley’s first feature is a scintillating comedic outburst of political imagination and visionary fury.”  – Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Sorry to Bother You, the feature debut of writer-director Boots Riley, and the no-contest wildest comedy of the season, will keep your mind busy for weeks.” – Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail

“If you had to boil the unruly inventiveness of Sorry to Bother You down to one sentence, it could be this: Doing the right thing always involves risk. Get ready.” –Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine

“Gathers up an eclectic range of influences. . . and pushes them rambunctiously forward, into a genre that might be described as intersectional screwball science fiction.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
