Three sentence movie reviews: Sorry to Bother You

What starts as a wacky, smart commentary on alternative-present social, economic and racial issues takes a very weird turn partway through. The weirdness works having been properly set up in the first half. Lakeith Stanfield makes the most of his sorrowful eyes and Tessa Thompson* knocks it out of the park as a sign waver/performance artist in this movie that is a worth-seeing zeitgeist.

Cost: $6.00
Where watched: Laurelhurst Theater

*She’s having a great (and well-deserved) couple of years.

Also consider watching: Get Out, Attack the Block, Dear White People

  1. Tessa Thompson will always be a Veronica Mars gal in my book. She is having a wonderful explosion in her career. It’s fun to see her being so successful!

    1. I found her acting very distant in Veronica Mars, though I liked her plot arc. It’s fun to see her range as she’s gotten more roles.
