Logan Fall (This Week’s Movies)


Dafne Keen, Hugh Jackman: Logan

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.

Logan. “A gratifying piece of movie storytelling.”

Before I Fall. “What makes this formula work is the intensity director Ry Russo-Young brings to it. Before I Fall is drenched in atmosphere, whether it’s the damp mood of a Pacific Northwest suburb or the hothouse of a teen party.”

The Salesman. “The movie’s main issue is a warped concept of masculinity, an issue Farhadi explores not by appointing a single villain but by depicting the problem in context.”

Early warning: Next Friday, March 10, the Framing Pictures group will convene to sort through a bounty of movie topics, including an upcoming Seattle Art Museum series on the films of Yasujiro Ozu; James Mangold’s Logan; and a trove of new DVD releases, from Mildred Pierce to the Jacques Demy movies that inspired La La Land. And yes, I may speak to the cultural significance of Philip Kaufman’s 1979 gem The Wanderers. It’s free, at Scarecrow Video at 7 p.m. More info on our Facebook page.
