Idles – “Mercedes Marxist”

IDLES released their politically-charged sophomore LP, Joy As An Act Of Resistance, last August. This week, they embark on their sold-out US tour. And today, the Bristol punk outfit are sharing a new song. “Mercedes Marxist” is pulled from the sessions for their latest album. Frontman Joe Talbot's voice grows gruff over a … More »

‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco’ Trailer: A24’s Sundance Winner Gives a New Perspective on Gentrification

One of the Sundance Film Festival’s biggest hits was a little film by a new first-time director that is becoming the indie hit to beat this summer. The Last Black Man in San Francisco follows the footsteps of last year’s searing indictments of gentrification, Blindspotting and Sorry to Bother You, but with the addition of a warm, vibrant color palette and director Joe Talbot‘s lyrical direction. The winner of the US Dramatic Directing Award was picked up for distribution by A24, who released th...

"Maybe he's right - what if we shouldn't be here…" A24 has debuted the first trailer for Joe Talbot's The Last Black Man in San Francisco, one of the best films out of the Sundance Film Festival this year, and already one of my favorite films of the year (not much will be able to top it). Winner of Best Director and a Special Jury Award at Sundance, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a sweeping story about friendship and holding on to your roots in a rapidly changing world. Talbot crafte...

Sundance 2019 Awards Go to ‘Clemency’, ‘One Child Nation’, ‘The Souvenir’ and More

Another Sundance Film Festival has come to an end, bringing with it a whole new slate of films that will either be obsessed over for the following year, or consigned to the badlands of VOD. The festival ended with awards going to films such as One Child Nation, The Souvenir, the documentary Knock Down the House, and more. See the full list of Sundance 2019 awards below. I had a blast at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and I also managed to see almost none of the movies that took home awa...

Sundance 2019: 'The Last Black Man in San Francisco' is Perfection

This is the film I was waiting to discover at the Sundance Film Festival. Something that's superb right from the start and sticks the landing. The Last Black Man in San Francisco is the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Joe Talbot, a San Francisco native, telling a very emotional and honest story about how the city has changed over time. The film is co-written by and stars Jimmie Fails (who's also a good friend of Talbot), playing himself and telling his own story, about what it's like to...

The 15 Best Movies We Saw at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival

The Sundance Film Festival often sets the tone for the entire year in film – it arrives early and plants a flag to announce “these are the first great and most promising movies of the next 12 months.” The /Film team was on the ground in Park City, Utah for the 2019 edition and we saw and reviewed a ton of movies. And we saw so many movies we loved that picking a select few to make a “best of” list turned out to be a bit of a challenge. But make a “best of” list we did! These are the 15 best mov...

‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco’ Review: A Poetic Tale of Gentrification and Friendship [Sundance]

At last year’s Sundance Film Festival, both Blindspotting and Sorry to Bother You weaved Oakland’s gentrification into their underlying stories. At this year’s fest, co-writer/director and fifth generation San Franciscan Joe Talbot addresses the subject in an even more direct way with his memorable debut film, The Last Black Man in San Francisco.  Jimmie (an excellent Jimmie Fails, who has a “story by” credit on the script and plays a character inspired by his own life) and Mont (a superb Jon...

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco’

Trying to tell an epic quest about gentrification is a lot like making an action movie about global warming. While inherently dramatic, both processes happen so slowly, audiences are liable to lose interest while waiting for the ice caps to melt. And so it goes with “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” a gorgeous […]

The 60 Best Songs of 2018

60. St. Vincent - "Fast Slow Disco" Just because an album is available to purchase doesn't mean the songs are complete. While most acts will add different nuances to their hits in a live setting, Annie Clark is still very much obsessed with the tracks that made up her stellar 2017 effort Masseduction. She took her string-drenched highlight from that record "Slow Disco" and, while touring, turned it into an amped-up dance number, discovering that underneath all the opulence, it was a fist-...

Desert Daze 2018: These photos show you what it was like to be at the festival

Desert Daze’s inaugural year at the Lake Perris State Recreation Area is in the books. The festival’s seventh year was a wild one — with severe weather that cut short Tame Impala’s set on Friday night and a mellow and cool Saturday that hit the reset button before a perfect beach day on Sunday was capped off by My Bloody Valentine melting everyone’s faces off. These images from photographer Drew A. Kelley show you what it was like to be there. Stefan Burnett of the band Death Grips performs ...

Desert Daze 2018: What you need to know about the first two days of the festival

Desert Daze packed plenty of drama in its first two days at the Lake Perris State Recreation Area. On Friday night, severe thunderstorms rolled through, prompting organizers to pull the plug on the whole night early in Tame Impala’s set. A day later, it was like the rain had washed away the bad vibes of the night before (and the opening day parking woes) with hours of psychedelic rock at the lakeside park. But Friday wasn’t all bad. Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker brought his new project Jarv Is, which inc...

Desert Daze festival regroups after storms; see photos from opening day

After thunderstorms cut short the opening day of the Desert Daze festival at Lake Perris State Recreation Area Friday night, organizers regrouped and made changes to appease fans, many of whom also battled hours of traffic to enter. The festival tweeted out that Friday passes will be honored Saturday and parking will be free for the remainder of the weekend in addition to refunding parking fees to those who had already paid. Day two of Desert Daze is set to begin as scheduled and we hope everyo...
