Logan Lucky
« on: June 27, 2017, 04:09:38 pm »
Directed, edited, and shot by Steven Soderbergh from a screenplay by Rebecca Blunt, the film stars Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, Brian Gleeson, Jack Quaid, Hilary Swank, Daniel Craig, Jesco White, David Denman, Jim O'Heir, and Macon Blair. Trying to reverse a family curse, siblings Jimmy, Mellie, and Clyde Logan set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina during Memorial Day weekend.

I think I read somewhere that Tatum will like this film.

He knows best so I too shall rejoice with the same opinion.

The pacing isn't quite as tight as some of Soderbergh's other work, the camera holds a little too long during the dialogue scenes, (I heard he edited the dailies after shooting and even had a version of the film the night the it wrapped, so maybe that has something to do with it) and the film gets away with some product placement throughout because of the Nascar heist and probably based on how the film was produced. It all feels natural though, there's like zero cynicism for West Virginia and southern lifestyles.

Adam Driver is so damn good in it. I only saw bits and pieces of Paterson so I mainly know him from Star Wars but the dude was better than Daniel Craig in this.  Driver's performance and southern drawl is scary accurate and his delivery makes him seem like some iconic Coen bros. character. Channing is always great under Soderbergh. Seth Macfarlane is in this I guess, I don't hate him but he was **** terrible in this role. Whoever Tatum's daughter is in this is a stellar child actor.

The humor is a little bit referential but it does land almost every joke. While the editing wasn't super quick, it let most of the scenes breathe which really pays off when the movie wants you to care for its characters. I was having so much fun during the heist section that I was caught off guard by how seamless Soderbergh reintroduced an emotional moment. I was looking forwards to this and was still pleasantly surprised.

Would you say that it's accessibile for someone who hasn't seen any of Soderbergh's movies?

Also, you should try to finish Paterson. It's quite heartwarming and Adam Driver was great there too. It's on Amazon Prime.

Damn, I really need to see this. I was so bummed when Soderbergh said he was quitting directing, so it makes me very happy that he's returned to such critical acclaim. Too bad it's got MacFarlane in it, though...

MacFarlane doesn't have too much of a big role in it though.  He's easily ignored.  Daniel Craig steals the show in this.

I can't believe this constant hostility. I bring up my opinion on this film plainly, with no ulterior motive whatsoever, and you have to turn it into some kind of argument. You disappoint me.

Diego, by saying that, you're practically asking people to argue with you.  How about you bring up your opinion on Logan Lucky, the film you just saw, instead of comparing it to a film that it has no relevance to apart from having similar titles.

One has to wonder whether or not you can be impartial in this evaluation, given that the joke went right over your head. but ok
