Critic Reviews for The Last Black Man in San Francisco

All Critics (187) | Top Critics (41)

It's less of a rallying cry against gentrification than a rumination on the kind of pained acceptance those who suffer its effects must face.

It's beautifully filmed and perfectly played. The final shot is as epic as it is heartbreaking.

The men behind The Last Black Man in San Francisco aren't trying to be cool or sleek. That's the last thing on their minds and probably explains why they do such a fine job of standing out from the crowd.

The whole film lifts and sighs as a lament for vanished birthrights, while coaxing these characters to cherish what they have.

This interplay between an almost documentary authenticity and obviously sculpted political allegorical, then between fiction and reality, imbue the film with an odd intensity.
