Critic Reviews for The Last Black Man in San Francisco

All Critics (146) | Top Critics (35)

The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poetic and picturesque ode to the title city, to friendship and to the universal urge to find a place to call home.

July 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Even though Talbot opts for a quasi-humorous approach to the subject matter, the comedic edge can't hide an underlying sadness about what this all means.

July 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

There is something irrepressibly original and exciting in the collaboration that results between Talbot, Fails and co-writer Rob Richert - a cinematic vision that feels as fresh as it does necessary.

July 4, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

"The Last Black Man in San Francisco" is poignant filmmaking with an invigorating spirit.

June 21, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

The acting by the two principals is impeccable, their portrait of male friendship is deeply felt.

June 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

It sometimes feels as if Talbot is overplaying his hand-his use of slow-motion, for instance, feels needlessly arty-but one can't deny the seriousness of his concerns or his emotional investment in the material.
