Sorry to Bother You ★★★★★

Filled with the same multi-layered absurdism as director Boots Riley’s 20+ year hip-hop career, Sorry To Bother You won’t be everyone’s go-to talisman of race-relations put to film. More in-your-face than on-the-nose, there’s a lot to deconstruct, & it just about makes sense in it’s own bonkers way, grounded by another squeaky-clean outing from Lakeith Stanfield.

It’s density could be exhausting, but here the attention to detail comes across more as a labour of love than ego. Congratulations Boots, your beautiful baby boy has grown into a very handsome young man.
