When a black man (Lakeith Stanfield) starts his new job as a telemarketer, he’s encouraged to use his “white voice” to make more sales. His success leads him on a twisting adventure that (I guarantee) you will not see coming. Suffice it to say that there’s a sci-fi element that takes this movie into a surprising place. Writer/director (and rapper) Boots Riley has demonstrated an assured grip on storytelling with some creative directorial moments. Although the messaging is heavy handed and it spirals a bit out of control before the end, it’s still a dark, fascinating and unique look at the world…or at least Oakland. There’s also a great soundtrack from The Coup (Riley’s band).

 

3.5 Stars (3.5 / 5)
