SORRY TO BOTHER YOU post-release
#1
Wild and trenchant and awesome and seriously just bananas.  The conceit that Lakeith Stanfield finds success in telemarketing after he discovers his "white voice" - and literally becomes overdubbed by David Cross when he activates it - is like the 24th weirdest thing going on in this script.  Get Out will probably be the most frequent touchstone for people groping to compare this to some other known quantity, and that comparison does have some scraps of validity.  But STBY has equal amounts of Repo Man, Network, Being John MalkovichBrazilBlack Mirror, and Idiocracy rattling around in its DNA.  I know that sounds like a mishmashed disaster, but it's actually a mishmashed miracle.  

In some ways this is the movie every Chuck Pahlaniuk book wants to be.  It would make an absolutely fascinating double-feature with Fight Club, just to see how switching the racial perspective of the protagonist inverts the thematic throughline entirely.  

You guys gotta see this.  I don't want to spoil anything, because the wild left turns are so much part of the fun, but I will say the compliment-fight had my entire theater rolling for the better part of a minute.  One of the longest sustained laughs in my moviegoing life.
