Andrew | A.J.’s review published on Letterboxd:
He had to go away.
Just incredible. Rian Johnson’s Looper is an utterly brilliant picture, a vision of broken humans and regret. Our protagonist is a contract killer who lives without remorse and consequence - yet we sympathize with him, we want him to win this battle. The awful deeds of the characters are all presented through the morally steadfast eyes of a child: right and wrong are obvious, and painful. The wonderfully utilized science fiction aspect is just the icing on the cake here; this is a story of pain and regret, and of making the right choice.
Looper is one of the great masterpieces of the decade.
