Rated R · 119 minutes · 2012
Looper — nominally a time-travel/action movie — is crazy smart, but (unlike with, say, Inception) you won't spend its runtime trying to glue together its illogic. You'll just be enjoying the movie. Because all you need to know to enjoy Looper is that actions have consequences — and Looper is an action movie. But Looper is "just" an action movie the same way Brick was "just" a noir, or The Brothers Bloom was "just" a heist flick. All three were written and directed by Rian Johnson, and with each, Johnson appropriates the skeleton of a genre, then fleshes it out in astonishingly clever ways. (118 min.)
