Sorry to Bother You ★★★

So Danny Glover reprimands Cash for using Richard Pryor's nasal dweeby whitey character for his “white voice”, but then they end up going with David Cross and Patton Oswalt of all people as what white people “only wish they sound like” anyway? I feel like I'm missing something here.

This is almost a mashup of two of my favorite movies, It's a Wonderful Life and Repo Man, plus my favorite Black Mirror episode, “Fifteen Million Merits”, but it still didn't fully land for me. It’s just too slack, plus it's got a strain of goofy SNL humor that I’m not into, and it all kind of falls apart as it heads towards the resolution. So does Repo Man, but it rallies for the finale, and this really doesn't. There's a conclusion, then another conclusion, and the payoff is very weak.

Nice try, I'm behind it in principle, but I'm never going to sit through it again.
