Wow Watch: Sorry To Bother You (2018)

Watched:  09/04/2021
Format:  Hulu
Viewing:  First
Decade:  2010's
Director:  Boots Riley

Man, I am not even going to try to summarize or reflect on this movie.

What I do know is that AmyC was going to make me podcast this, and it would have been one in a series of movies Amy woud have shown me that would have blown my mind and then she would have been, like, "hey - react!"  I love that she does this, but I think I always spend the first 5-15 minutes of those podcasts trying to get my thoughts in order.

Anyway - HIGHLY recommended.   You haven't seen anything like it.

Yeah, that third act was where it lost me

I stayed with it. Stanfield and Thompson were amazing - and Hammer (I think I can still say that). Felt oddly prescient for the changes employers are trying to make (see: Nabisco), and how people are just not willing to take those jobs. BTW - they're replacing servers with robots in Austin right now.
