In an alternate reality of present-day Oakland, Calif., telemarketer Cassius Green finds himself in a macabre universe after he discovers a magical key that leads to material glory. As Green’s career begins to take off, his friends and co-workers organize a protest against corporate oppression. Cassius soon falls under the spell of Steve Lift, a cocaine-snorting CEO who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams. – Annapurna Pictures 

Sorry to Bother You is a movie much like Get Out— its funny, it’s weird and it has message that I’m probably too stupid to understand. It feels like it’s about racism and classism but I could be totally wrong. There’s definitely a message and there is something to be learned from this movie. But besides all that this is a victorious directorial debut from Boots Riley. Sorry to Bother You is such a visually creative and appealing movie. It’s quite subversive, there’s comedy and body horror — it’s just so weird and it looks great. A must see for the year, definitely.

  • Blu-ray

    • definitely some but the interwebs doesn’t want to tell me

I'm a recent college grad trying to make my mark on the world. But I have no idea what I'm doing. Anyways I spend way too much money on movie tickets. I obsessively buy blu-rays and other movie paraphernalia, that's what credit cards are for, right? I like anything superhero related especially the MCU, the DC CW shows and I'll tell you Batman v. Superman wasn't that bad. My ultimate guilty pleasure movie is Daredevil. Yeah the Ben Affleck one. Watch the directors cut, it'll change your life. I have a tendency to have man crushes on men named Chris, especially Chris Pratt. My superhero obsession has also led to a gym obsession, I just want to look as good as Chris Evans in a plain white tee. I have a podcast on iTunes called the Deadlifting Dorks, I think we are really funny.
