“Last Black Man in San Francisco” is a film starring Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors and Danny Glover.

Fails, who plays himself in the film, wrote the story which so resembles his own and Director Joe Talbot together with Rob Richert co-wrote the screenplay. This is a tender, warm, well written and well acted story of the city of San Francisco and its diversified and unique group of residents who struggle to survive, recapture and hold on to their past. But the real essence of the film and its story is family history and how difficult it is to remain close to it as the adult years overtake us. I give the film an 8 rating and suggest that after seeing the film the viewer will leave more than his or her heart in the city by the Bay. Expand

I'm black, I live in the Bay Area (though never lived in San Francisco proper) and I still don't get what this movie is about. I found myself repeatedly asking, "Why is this a movie? Is this going to go anywhere?" Spoiler: It didn't, at leastI'm black, I live in the Bay Area (though never lived in San Francisco proper) and I still don't get what this movie is about. I found myself repeatedly asking, "Why is this a movie? Is this going to go anywhere?" Spoiler: It didn't, at least not really and to nowhere special. Or maybe this is supposed to be some artsy **** that just all went over my head somehow? Was a small audience I saw it with and several people walked out. If I wasn't with someone, I would've walked out as well because it was just too boring. Very disappointing. Expand

This is a film about an African American man who's lived and grown up in San Francisco his whole life with his best friend by his side, as the two long to make a living and try to find a way to hold onto their family home there. The film isThis is a film about an African American man who's lived and grown up in San Francisco his whole life with his best friend by his side, as the two long to make a living and try to find a way to hold onto their family home there. The film is semi-autobiographical, as lead actor Jimmie Fails and director Joe Talbot both went through similar trials in life together like the ones depicted in this film while trying to get this made. Their effort and passion certainly shines through in virtually every scene, as each shot feels so deliberate and beautiful. The performances from everybody involved, including a touching performance from veteran actor Danny Glover, are all excellent. Overall, it manages to be equal parts funny, moving, and all-around unique and beautiful to watch, serving as not just a love letter to San Francisco, but to all of life's most important themes, such as love, family, friendship, and dreams. It's certainly one of the best films I've seen so far this year! Expand
