New Release Wall #36: Sorry To Bother You

September 7, 2018

Russ and Zach make a trip to the cinema for Sorry To Bother You, the first feature film from Boots Riley, who pretty clearly stands out as a Talent You Should Be Watching.

We talk a lot about film theory, about the importance of indepdendent cinema, and other theoretical and quasi-academic stuff that we don't get into with most of the big blockbusters and schlock horror movies we watch.

But fear not: we find a way to tie it back to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

For those of you relatively new to the show, the New Release Wall episodes differ from other episodes in one important way: we are talking about a new-in-theaters or BRAND-new-to-video movie, which typically means we do no (or at least minimal) spoilers and there is no second film discussed in the episode. This time around, though, there are a few particular films (O Lucky Man and Idiocracy, for instance) that come up again and again.

You can find us (and a number of other awesome podcasts) on the ACPN family of shows.

If you like what we're doing here, you can become a patron of the Emerald City Video Podcast, which comes with fun perks. You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook. We also have Instagram and Vero accounts where we share images, photos, memes, and nonsense.

Be back for more by noon on the fifth day, and please -- always remember to rewind your videocassettes.
