Not sorry as this film looks like a hoot. And even if it’s not, any movie that manages to mix sci-fi and telemarketing deserves a watch.
In fact if you don’t see it when it comes out, I may have to cold-call you under the pretext of checking your entitlement to a PPI refund, or get you compensation for an accident you don’t remember having, and question you as to why.
Cassius Green gets a job telemarketing, and is told he needs a “white voice” to really be a success.
Soon he’s doing so well he’s moved upstairs with the Power Callers, but it turns out his employers aren’t selling what he thinks they’re selling…
Sorry To Bother You is directed by Boots Riley, and stars Lakeith Stanfield as Cassius, Tessa Thompson, Armie Hammer and Terry Crews. The movie has already been seen at a couple of festivals, and is released in the US on 6 July 2018. No word on a UK release date yet (or any others).
