You Say You Want a Revolution? The Anti-Capita…

You Say You Want a Revolution? The Anti-Capitalist Film “Sorry to Bother You” Shows the Way:

As the director and writer Boots Riley explained in a series of recent interviews, he’s not interested
in performative art or performative politics that aren’t rooted in
broader movements. “Progressives and radicals have turned more to
spectacle and gone away from actually organizing at the actual point of
contradiction in capitalism, which is the exploitation of labor, which
is also where the working class has its power,” he recently told Amy Goodman
on Democracy Now!. “We’ve gone in favor of demonstrations that don’t
necessarily have teeth … and I feel like we have to give these
demonstrations more teeth by being able to affect the bottom line.”

The diverse cast challenges the myth that class struggle must come at
the expense of nonwhite interests — an increasingly popular
characterization among liberals who’ve argued against breaking up the banks because it won’t cure racism, who’ve undermined a “new” New Deal on the basis that racial disparities marred the original, or who’ve implied,
even if unwittingly, that the recent teacher strikes in West Virginia,
Arizona, Kentucky, and Colorado were somehow at odds with the interests
of people of color. But its equally relevant for working-class white
audiences for whom a genuinely worry-free “white voice” is inaccessible,
too.

Of course, the class struggle is most urgent for those at the bottom
of the economic hierarchy, which, due to a legacy of racism, is
disproportionately nonwhite. As Terry Crews explained when asked why he took the role:

It reminded me of so many people I grew up with in Flint,
Michigan. They’d given up all of their dreams, everything they wanted
in life for the security of the factory, and it turned on them. They
told you you’re gonna have health care for life, you’re gonna have this
for life — everyone was told the same thing: This is for life, y’all.
And it went 15 years. And it was over. And everybody was like, “What do I
do now?”

Earlier in the interview, Crews summed it up precisely: “This is the movie we didn’t know we needed.”

Annihilation was SO amazing. If you ever see any movie in the theater it should be this one. It was unique, unsettling, intense, heartbreaking, and beautiful. It touched me in a way few movies have. It made something grow inside of me and then broke it off and made me look at the shattered pieces. I wasn’t expecting for it to have such an emotional toll on me. Please go watch it if you can.

If you watch ANNIHILATION at an Arclight theatre, make sure you stay all the way through the end credits. There is an entire Arclight “behind-the-scenes” piece following them that includes Alex Garland and cast.

I just saw Annihilation…

…AND THIS FILM IS FUCKING WILD. WOW.

Alex Garland is 2/2 now so far. Dude is just brilliant. This is definitely his most ambitious film to date, and that’s saying something since this is the same man behind Ex Machina (which I adored btw).

The cast was used really well, you have great talents on screen and Garland did NOT fucking waste that.

Seriously guys, watch Annihilation. Support it, talk about it, tell everyone about it. WE NEED MORE ORIGINAL, AMBITIOUS, AND WELL-EXECUTED FILMS LIKE THIS.

P. S. Don’t ever pirate true KINO.

I can’t see it yet but, I will definitely!

Geoff Barrow was in one of my favourite bands of the 90’s onward, Portishead. So this even without the Oscar Isaac connection I’d be extremely pleased to hear this.
