LOGAN NOIR
2017, 20th Century Fox, 137 min, USA/Canada/Australia, Dir: James Mangold

“Nature made me a freak. Man made me a weapon. And God made it last too long.” Set in a bleakly familiar near-future, the latest installment of the X-Men franchise follows the final days of James “Logan” Howlett (Hugh Jackman, giving the performance of a lifetime), formerly known as Wolverine. Hiding in Mexico with a decrepit Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Logan is just trying to keep his head down and disappear. But when you’re a super-healing mutant with adamantium claws, trouble always seems to find you, and this time it comes in the form of a little girl named Laura (newcomer Dafne Keen). Bloody and graceful, dystopic yet hopeful, thrilling and profound, LOGAN is the superhero movie we always knew was possible, one that takes the source material seriously while still finding its own voice.
