    This film was a surrealistic joy. A little Terry Gilliam, a little Spike Lee.

    Boots Riley delves into many themes including gentrification and exploitation of Black people within the genre of sci-fi/fantasy - and it works brilliantly. The main cast was strong; Lakeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson played the leads very well with their abilities to portray characters who were realistic, yet irregular.

    The final act comes completely out of left field but it works due to the bizarre atmosphere and tone the film sets from act one. This movie could have worked well without the spoiler at the end but I think it helped to give the film that extra layer of "offbeat-ness".

    This is a movie worth checking out if you are a fan of offbeat, indie movies. If you enjoy the occasional surreal sci-fi/fantasy film every now and then, definitely put this one on your list to watch

    Was a bit disappointed with the final act. I think the initial corporate satire was potent enough to carry through to the end. No silly twist was required. 2 months 1 week ago

    I don't think this movie turned out to be what anyone thought it would be...in the best way possible. 2 months 3 weeks ago
