Our take

For his anarchic feature debut, writer-director Boots Riley throws everything at the screen. A satirical firecracker with a magnificent central performance from Lakeith Stanfield, Sorry to Bother You is a provocative interrogation of white privilege mounted with boundless energy and imagination.
