The Last Black Man in San Francisco. I missed this last year when it came out - fantastic slow burn. Directed by Joe Talbot and starring Jimmie Fails (from his own story), Jonathan Majors (seen recently in Da 5 Bloods), Rob Morgan, Tichina Arnold, and Danny Glover (with a great supply of knits... more on that later..) The score is a showstopper too along with inventive camerawork, and a mediation on race and gentrification, and masculinity;
"Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind."
If you live in San Fran (or anywhere with a great public library that supports the Kanopy movie player) you can watch it right here. Kanopy is an essential resource for the toolkit...
A24 are killing it with the movie merch (see The Lighthouse) and in this case printed an "Insiders Guide to SF" from the filmmakers
Danny Glover (San Fran native - also seen in Sorry To Bother You - again touching on San Francisco gentrification, and race relations) plays supportive father to Mort, Jimmy's friend and playwright. Great knits!
