The Last Black Man In San Francisco

The Last Black Man In San Francisco (Review)

The effects of gentrification weigh heavily on the city itself as well as its inhabitants in director Joe Talbot’s debut feature, The Last Black Man In San Francisco. The title is more of an exaggeration, despite the film going in some magical realism style directions which could have signaled a literal take, and instead deals with a man, played by Jimmie Fails (and based on his own life) who feels like he’s being pushed out of the city he calls home.
