A good movie

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it was pretty obvious that it was a directing debut but I don’t mean it in a negative way. Indeed, the thing I enjoyed the most about the damned thing was how it burst out of creativity and  it was basically a very nice mix of a shilling reality with some maddening surrealism.

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it was pretty obvious that it was a directing debut but I don’t mean it in a negative way. Indeed, the thing I enjoyed the most about the damned thing was how it burst out of creativity and  it was basically a very nice mix of a shilling reality with some maddening surrealism. However, if Boots Riley definitely displayed some potential, the whole thing still felt sometimes like a loose cannon with some rather random stuff happening every two minutes and you could feel that he could have used a filter to remove some of his ideas. For example, it was pretty cool that the main character had to use a ‘white’ voice to make more sales but I think it was a mistake to have LaKeith St” read more

" DVD- 1hr. 50min. First Viewing Despite a third act that feels a bit wobbly in execution (I can't decide if it's over or undercooked), Sorry to Bother You is an offbeat, incisive satire that lambastes a number of current societal woes with vigor and wit. After viewing this one, one thing becomes clear; Writer-director Boots Riley's script is the star. Despite an excellent cast (especially LaKeith Stanfield and Armie Hammer) and kinetic filmmaking energy (think a much less twee Wes Anderson), it'"

"Re-watch - March 31st Still hands down my favorite film of 2018. I wanted to revisit in while it was still in the theatre, but wound up missing it. I picked it up on Blu-ray not long ago, so I've had an itch lately to give it another look. Everything about the film is great in my book, and I love how original it is. It's so full of surprises, and great little details, and it's smart and funny and just kills me. I'll gladly watch it any time, and I hope it continues to grow its fanbase in the ye"

"When the olive/jade door scene was happening I was this movie to end in something really crazy. It kinda does but at the same time I was expecting a bit more after all I had heard so much how crazy the ending is."
