Brief Synopsis:
Logan battles his primal paternal intuition as he makes his way through a dark fairy tale landscape filled with southern gothic grotesqueries. As his health fails him he finds himself operating on instincts he thought long lost, as if his destiny were already decided. As he passes into the realm of myth he finally realizes what he had been fighting for all those years.
Intention:
My intention was to bring the tone of Logan closer to that of the original trailer that featured Hurt by Johnny Cash. I also wanted to bring to the forefront the film's themes of art influencing life vs. life influencing art, and the determinism of fairy tales and myths. What resulted is a film much more immersed in its Southern Gothic stylings and focused more on atmosphere. The film has also been completely re-scored with Country and Folk music and some minor exposition and narrative elements have been reduced.

A terrific attempt at making an already outstanding film even more dark and melancholic in tone with phenomenal rescoring and clever editing throughout. A great piece of work from start to finish.

I had the pleasure of reviewing this edit for the Academy/IFDB.

An outstanding edit. Honestly one of the best I've seen. The rescoring is excellent, and I'm a sucker for Johnny Cash. I didn't have any problems with this movie initially, but after reading the cutlist I think the removal of Laura's dialogue and exposition was a good choice.

I recommend for everyone to check out this edit, and look forward to seeing what dannydangle will create in the future!
