Last weekend I saw The Last Black Man in San Francisco and it just does so many things so well. But the strongest thing about all these things is the ability to tell big stories on a small scale, and it does so over and over again.
My fiancee likened the beginning of the movie to the beginning of Up which essentially tells the full story of the movie in short, beautiful, heartbreaking minutes. It's also such an amazingly confident intro that you immediately enter the movie with awe and wonder.
My favorite example of this type of storytelling, however, is a short gag in the middle of the film. A naked man sits down on a bench next to the protagonist. We first see him as a madman, but the movie turns him over and instead highlights the problems of San Francisco instead of laughing at the cost of this obviously troubled man.

The Banana Splits Movie
It's weird to think about how we came culturally to a place where there are certain films. I'm not sure what exactly comes together to make The Banana Splits Movie – a love of horror, a need for irony – but here it is: a film adaptation of a fun 60's kids show that turns For some reason, some silly costume characters turned into murderous villains. The movie will be released this summer.
HBO has recorded a movie by Sundance about a high school girl who has an attack she can not remember video shared around her school. The film is based on a short film by the same director who won the Cannes Highest Short Film Award in 2015. The feature film will be released on July 27 at HBO.
Bad Trip Sets New Accents Jackass String Compilation combines all these stunts into a feature film with a loosely constructed storyline.
