HIGHLIGHTS: Interview with Logan director James Mangold
For Coming Soon, I detailed the first act of Logan revealed at the Fox Showcase, and interviewed James Mangold about the hard-R superhero movie, its politics, and the responsibility of filmmakers now.
In part, Mangold said, "You need to thoughtful about what you're putting on screen and that we're not anesthetizing, meaning I am lot more nervous that a lot of entertainment these days serves to keep us asleep...They're kind of just numbing us. And as a filmmaker, I don't want to be part of that. I don't want to be part of the Matrix-ization of the world."
