We’re suckers for time-travel action/sci-fi tales, so we were already interested in this futuristic tale of an assassin who is given the assignment of offing his future self. But when we found out Looper was written and directed by Rian Johnson, we were all the way in; after all, this is the inventive filmmaker behind Gordon-Levitt’s breakthrough film, the hard-boiled high school noir flick Brick, as well as the giddily entertaining (and sadly underseen) The Brothers Bloom. And Emily Blunt’s in it too? Well, now they’re just taunting us.
