The Men of Micheaux welcome actor RYAN SANDS (Marvel's Runaways) as they review Men In Black (1997) LIVE at Blerd City Con 2019 at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, NYC.
Director-writer Boots Riley has put together a satirical masterpiece - a slow dystopian slice of Afrofuturism that took 2018 by storm - SORRY TO BOTHER YOU, starring Lakeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson.
A sci-fi movie from the 50s that stars a black man and a white woman, mixed in a triangle of passion with a white man and they’re possibly the last people on the Earth - sounds like a job for Harry Belafonte! Fans of heated Vince vs Len debates will love this one.
Vince and Len moderate a free-wheeling talkback at a special screening of Boots Riley's SORRY TO BOTHER YOU at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute. Special thanks to Jacob Mazer and BMFI for the invite.
The 1980s may have been a renaissance for science fiction movies with Star Wars and its sequels, Star Trek and Buckaroo Banzai lighting the skies and filling the seats. But a non-descript science fiction-ish slavery allegory set in the rumbling streets of Harlem offers a more cerebral thoughtful brand of galactic whimsy.
