(2018. US 1 hr, 45 min. Directed by Boots Riley. R.) In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, black telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield- “Atlanta”) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe of "power calling" that leads to material glory. But the upswing in Cassius' career raises serious red flags with his girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson- “Thor: Ragnarok”), a performance artist and a minimum-wage striver who's secretly part of a Banksy-style activist collective. As his friends and co-workers organize in protest of corporate oppression, Cassius falls under the spell of his company's cocaine-snorting CEO Steve Lift (Armie Hammer- “Call Me By Your Name”), who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams. With Terry Crews, Danny Glover and the voices of David Cross and Patton Oswalt.
