Logan ★★★★★



"Stripped of its dusty, sunny images and the longing, exploitative glance of viscera, Logan Noir finds itself muting the very flourishes which define the R-Rating tattoo that the MPAA inked on and, in replacement, gains a sturdier grasp of its own character dynamics and implications, particularly in the art of violence. Black and white takes away the modern western colorization and its placement within a line of economically-centered masculine narratives (Hell or High Water, The Rover, Blood Father to name a few), allowing Logan to decentralize to its true self, a film soaked in kindness and how the path of accepting such beacons of light in a torrid world is a reluctant one."

Black and white makes all the difference.
