As Green's career begins to take off, his friends and co-workers organize a protest against corporate oppression. Cassius soon falls under the spell of Steve Lift, a cocaine-snorting CEO who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams.

Subversive, irreverent and outrageously hilarious, “Sorry to Bother You” is arguably the first great comedy of the Trump era. Writer-director Boots Riley incorporates elements of satire, science fiction and horror to create a film that’s as unpredictable as it is provocative. And with his hip-hop combo, the Coup, Riley has come up with a soundtrack that’s likely to be a huge hit in its own right.

Stanfield, who played the character who yelled “Get out!” in “Get Out,” is perfectly cast as a guy who sincerely wants to get ahead but can’t help wrestling with his conscience. And Thompson (“Thor: Ragnarok”) turns in another first-rate performance.

“Sorry to Bother You” is an uncompromising and timely film of unapologetic brilliance.
