Rian Johnson is going to be a big deal. He’s the writer and director of Looper. This is a terrific movie on every level.
The writing and dialog is like Tarantino without showing off. The performances are an ode to masterful directing. Johnson got one of the best performances out of a little kid that I’ve ever seen. The script reminds me of Tarantino: all about the moral limits of amoral people.
The attention to detail and the look of the film is perfect too. Johnson is just really really good. This is his third movie; we’ve now got the last 2 movies in our Netflix queue. Brick and The Brothers Bloom. Brick is available on instant play.
