What to Watch in July

recommended image width: 1088px

The 2018 Festival’s most batshit crazy film hits theaters this July, and it comes from the unhinged mind of Boots Riley. With Sorry to Bother You, the musician-turned-filmmaker nabs Lakeith Stanfield to play Cassius Green, a 30-something black telemarketer who channels his “white voice” to ascend the ranks of a woefully corrupt corporation in a misguided pursuit of material happiness. But the higher he climbs, and the further he sells out to “the Man,” the weirder it all gets. Riley’s directorial debut slides into a small but poignant new wave of satirical comedy that threads the needle between hysterical and all-too-real.

Check out all of the Sundance-supported releases coming to theaters and digital platforms this month.
