Looper (2012)


In 2072, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent 30 years into the past, where a hired gun awaits. Someone like Joe, who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by transporting back Joe's future self.

The Buzz: Rian Johnson developed a cult audience with his first film, the teen noir mystery Brick, and while his follow-up, The Brothers Bloom, wasn't the breakthrough it could have been, his upcoming movie is a sci-fi departure that began test screenings nearly a year in advance and has earned such encouraging reviews that I wouldn't be surprised if it is repositioned for summer viewing. Reportedly more of a heady meditation on a man's encounter with his future self, comparisons to Moon abound, which is definitely not a bad sign.
