"Sorry To Bother You" Is A Funny, Yet A Sober Reflection of The American Job Market
"Sorry To Bother You"
July 6, 2018 Limited Release; July 13, 2018 Everywhere
Set for release, July 6, 2018, "Sorry To Bother You", stars Armie Hammer, Tessa Thompson, Lakeith Stanfield, Walking Dead's Steven Yeun, and all around funny man, Terry Crews. Cameos from Danny Glover and other big names should be expected. Though "Sorry To Bother You" is a fantasy dystopian science fiction film that takes place in the not-too-distant future (say 2019--just for grins here), you will see some sobering parallels between this funny cinematic gem and the real life challenges members of the American workforce face on a daily basis. "Sorry To Bother You" is produced by Forest Whitaker, Nina Yang Bongiovi and others. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 92% and Screen Rant awarded it 4.5/5.0. Pretty good "Cash". Let's see the trailer.

According to Stanford University psychologist, Associate Professor Jeanne Tsai's research, at the Culture and Emotion Lab there at Stanford in Palo Alto, CA, people tend to "respond more favorably to others that express the distinct kinds of positive emotions valued by their culture." Moreover, "people tend to want to approach some people, but not others." Professor Tsai notes however, "people's expressions have more of an impact than their ethnicity or gender." So, it looks like a huge smiling emoji should be given to everyone to wear as masks--then, all will look alike and all will have big smiling faces.
