Sorry to Bother You

Sorry to Bother You - The GBY

Since Sorry To Bother You opened at Sundance 2018 it has been touted as this year’s Get Out.  I found it to be less powerful because it is set in an alternate universe.  This film has a lot to say and is fairly funny in the beginning.  I don’t understand why Danny Glover’s character didn’t profit from having the answers.  Armie Hammer’s brief but drug fueled appearance is a high point.  Lakeith Stanfield (Cash Green) and Tessa Thompson (Detroit) make the movie sweet and charming before it goes off the deep end.  You may want to see this movie just to have your own opinion in the conversation.
