Logan is a soft spoken, lonely 13 year old boy with a crush on another boy. In order to become close to him, Logan creates a new persona named Leah. The boy and Leah grow close through whispered late night phone calls, but when Leah agrees to meet the boy, it is Logan who must reveal himself.

this is an extremely frustrating film. overall, i like it - a lot. i saw the original 98 minute cut first, and recently saw the 88 minute version. they are two different films, basically. a lot of moods and tones are changed radically, and even though the 88 minute version is tighter in a lot of good ways, it's missing a lot. i think archer is bang-on in everthing except his editing, which is sloppy in both cuts.
I'm surprised how much people dislike this film. I thought it was admirable how the director made a film with such a strong narrative using quite avant garde scenes. Logan's story was like a direct hit to my heart. I dunno though, maybe it's just that I related to story the story so much. I still thought the aesthetics were great.
Un filme que cae en el cliché sobre la fantasía cristalizadas de un niño inclinándose al deseo de las personas de su mismo género. Así como en película de Davies o Vas Sant (productor del filme), Archer apela a la soledad y la precariedad en la vida de un niño para excusar una suerte de "síntoma", aunque con un lenguaje presuntuoso.
The synopsis is, as usually on MUBI, far away from whats really in the movie.. Intriguingly, as the story leads you through, it looks like a typical gay boy story. However, never mentioned, I think Logan is Leah and Leah is Logan. Son of Venus and Mercury. A real one.
