Boots Riley’s surrealist sci-fi/comedy ‘Sorry to Bother You’ promises to be one of the strangest experiences you’ll have at the theater this year. Riley is making his feature writing/directing debut with this film, which stars Atlanta’s Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Steven Yeun, Armie Hammer and Patton Oswalt.
It’s hard to ask for a better cast than that, especially for a feature debut in directing.
It might not be the best film of the year, but it’s definitely going to be the most original, and that’s something that should be celebrated. Hollywood needs more creative/original artists, so please go support this movie when it’s released on July 13.
