"The acting by the two principals is impeccable, their portrait of male friendship is deeply felt."

— Soren Andersen, Seattle Times

"The way Talbot blends haunting imagery with a mournful score (by Emile Mosseri) is dreamlike, recalling the work of "Moonlight" director Barry Jenkins."

— Cary Darling, Houston Chronicle

"Mostly, the movie has a cascade of images and ideas, reference points and glimpses of everyday beauty that flow and swirl and, over time, gather tremendous force."

— Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

"It’s not a movie for admiring in freeze frame; it’s the kind 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."

— Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

"Jimmie’s story is 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."

— Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.com

"The film's greatest virtue lies in how it portrays the city it's rhapsodizing about, and that's what Talbot's promising, large-canvas photography is best suited for."

— David Sims, The Atlantic

"A lyrical, visually stunning tone poem to loss, lies, reclamation and making peace with the past, The Last Black Man in San Francisco virtually defies conventional description. To see it is to believe it, even when it doesn’t strictly make sense."

— Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"The film captures the experience of displacement, of travelling among spheres in which you have increasingly little say or stake and trying to blend in."

— Nathan Heller, New Yorker

"A strikingly immersive movie, a slow burn filled with subtleties and nuance, with its message nestled in the details as much as the greater story. While other filmmakers have effectively captured San Francisco’s landmarks and topography, story co-writers Fails and Talbot seem to be filming San Francisco’s streets with a microscope."

— Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
