Details

Politically supercharged satire Sorry to Bother You by outspoken rapper turned filmmaker Boots Riley is a must-see at LIFF 2018.
Skewering its targets in every direction from fat cat capitalists to racist institutions, the story follows Cassius Green (the brilliant Lakeith Stanfield) who gets a new job at a call centre and is coached into immediate success by a veteran colleague (Danny Glover), inciting him to ‘use his white voice’.
Riley escalates the satire from there, ricocheting from comic vignettes to confrontational agitprop to demented fantasy, in a wildly inventive, hugely entertaining cinematic ride.
