The Last Black Man in San Francisco ★★★★

Friendship, gentrification, black male roles, and disfunctional family dynamics are just some of the themes that this little art house film chooses to tackle- and tackle so well! Beautifully shot, poetically told, and wonderfully acted, but for whatever reason I think it will he overlooked at awards season. One of the best of the year for me thus far. The sequence featuring the cover of Scott McKEnzie’s “San Francisco” is worth the price of admission. Honestly, look up the track, listed as “San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers in Your Hair)” on the movie soundtrack, you will thank me later.
