The Last Black Man in San Francisco showtimes in London

What we think

If the film occasionally feels a little too sorry for itself, what cannot be denied is the glowing, revelatory experience of watching it all unfold: gorgeously tender, The Last Black Man in San Francisco pulls you in from its first frame and allows you to simply bath in what feels like a two-hour-long elegy.

What others think

It’s a shaggy, wistful film that acts as a heartfelt tribute to both a city and a friendship and when the cutesy quirk that surrounds it is dialled down, we’re able to appreciate the underpinning earnestness.
Benjamin Lee The Guardian
The experience of watching the film is no less than dizzying, and its rapid pace, maintained almost without interruption throughout, can at times be a little exhausting.
Elena Lazic Little White Lies
Shot in a woozy, unreal, and dryly comedic style that splits the difference between Spike Jonze and Spike Lee, [the film] slows the world down just enough for you to feel it changing.
David Ehrlich IndieWire
Half mood-piece, half character study, [the film] is a deeply moving lament on the effect of gentrification on the people on the Bay Area’s margins.
