One of the best films of the year is the wonderfully imaginative and cheekily provocative Sorry to Bother You, written and directed by Boots Riley.  Now you can buy the screenplay  for half price from McSweeney’s, just $10.

It’s also worth taking a look at Boots Riley’s critique of Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman. He has a lot of respect for Lee, but thought the movie should not have made Ron Stallworth into a hero because in addition to infiltrating the KKK, Stallworth, according to Riley, also infiltrated black activist groups. Stallworth has responded.
