    Sorry to Bother You


    A mess, but mostly an enjoyable one. Bursting with ideas, both thematic and visual, which Riley strains to contain with his limited (so far) skills as a filmmaker. But no one will ever guess where this one ends up going and it's a fun ride to get there.

    This is what happens when you have a cool idea for a thing but what you were supposed to do was make a TV show but instead you made a movie. Glad I didn't know anything about this movie beforehand cause Jeff Goldblum was a fun surprise.

    Stunning. This might be a 10 on another viewing just because it is so knotty and there’s no way I caught everything that is wonderful about this film. But I caught a lot. Best blocking of any film ever? Probably. Best sunglasses? Definitely. This is a goddam motion picture, folks. And please, my God, anyone who is planning to make a movie that makes use of space (every movie ever), please study how this film makes sure that we know exactly where everyone is in relation to everyone else at all times. Study that tailing scene in the streets! Study it!

    A middle aged, superstitious black woman lives inside me to react to films like this, shaking her head, crossing herself, and going "nuh uhhhh, mmm mmmm, no way, no thank you."
