Boots Riley is a literal MLM ranting on Twitter defending Venezeula and shit like that. Sorry to Bother You had scenes that pointed at imperialism. How did he slip through the cracks, considering the anti-communist character of the American film industry?


Because he can put on a good show. A commodity profitable enough to justify spreading socialist propaganda on the side. Though market mechanisms are the foremost tools of oppression, they're incredibly stupid, which allows for media entryism. Capitalists selling us the rope we'll hang them with, and all that. Though what Boots is doing is far from any effective resistance, considering how easily it's diluted by the rest of the spectacle


I've seen liberals think of it as some "le funny and cool black guys" movie that's just about IdPol and right-wingers thinking it has some "anti-white agenda" - people are so decoded from any critique of capitalism that they don't even notice it when it's right in front of them.


that is just depressing, the end of the movie literally made a call for revolution and criticized socdems and revisionists, in teh end the good guys literally storm a rich guys house, the movie is not that subtle, and some people still dont get it?


Hollywood and the US in general have been anti-communist so hard and for so long that they legit forgot what a communist looks like. None of those people have encountered communists in a generation at least, more like living memory. If you put a gun to their head (and didn't immediately pull the trigger) they couldn't tell you the difference between capitalism and communism.


If you pay attention and watch this movie critically, you will notice that it is actually very liberal. The producers of Zero Dark Thirty did not screw up by funding Sorry to Bother You, in fact they were very cunning by making a movie that subverts socialism.


>it is actually very liberal


>How did he slip through the cracks
It's an independent production, i.e. not a 'Hollywood movie'.




He won't because he's can't without sounding like the nut he most probably is.
