The Last Black Man in San Francisco

The Last Black Man in San Francisco ★★★★

It always amazes me when a new filmmaker makes a debut which truly feels different from all those that came before it. These characters don't feel familiar. These visuals are poems of the highest order. This amount of love for a city, for a home, for a life needing to be lived, felt like an invitation to see it all with the freshest of eyes.

This is not my world, but of course, it is also absolutely mine. I always say I left my heart in San Francisco because after being born there in 1967, my mother left with me at only 6 months old. It took until I was 36 for me to finally return. I fell hard and forever in love. So this film made me ache and pine and grieve.
