2018 • dir Boots Riley w/Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler, Omari Hardwick, Terry Crews • 111 min • DCP

In this surreal satire, the feature film debut from the leader of Oakland rap group, The Coup, a man (Stanfield) finds himself in an increasingly bizarre situation when he uncovers the secret to telemarketing success.

Staff Pick: Coty, Petra, Alissa – Boots Riley is the anti-capitalist hero we deserve

“★★★★!” – Ty Burr, The Boston Globe

“This surrealist comic moral tale, about a poor man selling his soul to ascend in a golden elevator to the heights of a dubious corporation, is a balls-to-the-wall, tits-to-the-glass, spectacular orgy of fist-pumping, anti-capitalist, pro-labor ideas rolled into 105 minutes of gloriously unpredictable plot. And just when you thought the film couldn’t get any more bizarre, it verges suddenly into science fiction. This, my friends, is indie cinema.” – April Wolfe, The Village Voice
