In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, black telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe of "powercalling" that leads to material glory. But the upswing in Cassius' career raises serious red flags with his girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson), a performance artist and 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), who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams.

I really enjoyed this film, amazing cast (the white voices you'll recognise, and lol incessantly.) It's relaxed, manic, all over the place at times but that's life, right? Also there's a killer line that I won't give away. I started expecting a hopefully decent indie and was very pleasantly surprised.

I went into this movie expecting a typical Kein Hart style comedy or rom com and it ended up being more of a dystopian sci-fi satire like Brazil. It might not be for everyone.
