    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★★

    Ok. So.

    There's a lot to like here. Specifically, Tessa and Lakeith. And it's so super stylized.

    There's this great gag where he's calling people (this is in the trailer), and then he's in their homes talking to them. This is fantastic. I wish there was more of this.

    The Wolf of Wall Street

    ★★½

    A few things about this film.

    1. It's way too long.
    2. The acting, directing, and technical aspects of the film are exactly as they should be. Fantastic.
    3. I'm not sure why I watched it apart from the aspects mentioned in #2 above.
    4. Don't do drugs.
    5. People are horrible.

    That is all.
