"ONE OF 2019's BEST MOVIES!" 

--Toronto Star

“ONE OF THE MOST ORIGINAL MOVIES OF THE YEAR”
 Austin Chronicle 

Piercing study of race, urban gentrification, and male friendship; heady meditation on nostalgia and memory; love letter to a singular city: It’s hard to exactly define Last Black Man, but it’s impossible not to fall under its spell. Audiences at Sundance — where it took home both Best Director and a Special Jury Prize — certainly swooned. Maybe it’s enough to say that it’s a romance between a man, his hometown, and a house? The man, Jimmie (Jimmie Fails) is smart and funny and sad and complicated, the hometown is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and the house is layer-cake Victorian. That house is where Jimmie seems to put all his restless energy, bringing his best friend Montgomery (Jonathan Majors) by to make sure the eaves are in good shape. He loves it, he reveals, because his grandfather built it.

When a legal conflict leaves the place vacant, Jimmie and Montgomery seize their chance; “squatter” seems like the wrong word for how lovingly they care for it. Their covert takeover hardly comes close to conveying the richness of first-time feature director Joe Talbot’s vision. It’s all shot so gorgeously that nearly every frame could be paused, printed, and hung on a wall. It’s the kind of movie you fall into with your whole heart and emerge from feeling, for two hours at least, what it is to fully be transported by the magic of film. --Entertainment Weekly

“A LYRICAL, VISUALLY STUNNING TONE POEM” Washington Post

“A slow ballad, a tragic ode, a dirty limerick, a wistful lament and a heartbreaking elegy. It’s a tribute to the notion of home that we all carry. This is one of the year’s best films. --RogerEbert.com

"It’s already one of the best movies of 2019 by a long shot." --Rolling Stone

Cast Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Danny Glover
