As I mentioned at the beginning of September, I’ve had a major hard-on in anticipation of the release of Looper.
Today, I can finally have my cinematic urges gratified. Bruce Willis
and Joseph Gordon-Levitt working together under the direction of Rian
Johnson should be awesome. The question is, will it be as awesome as
Johnson and JGL’s first endeavor, Brick?
Panicked, high school student Emily (Emilie de Ravin) calls her loner ex-beau, Brendan Frye (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), and before he can glean who, or what, has Emily so terrified, she hangs up. After finding her dead body, Brendan with the help of his friend the Brain (Matt O’Leary), begins to shake down everyone from the school’s upper crust like Brad (Brian White) and Laura (Nora Zehetner) to the pie-pan grease like Dode (Noah Segan) to solve her murder. All Brendan’s kicking around puts him in the sights of the Pin (Lukas Haas), head of the local drug trade, and the Pin’s hotheaded muscle, Tugger (Noah Fleiss).
