Looper: the trailer excites, but i worried that would be all. nothing but a grand concept and two hours of Willis blowing stuff up. It was more. Mouth agape, I watched in amazement as a powerful drama unfolded, worked through bleak scifi underpinnings. A movie that shows little gore, but transfixes and horrifies with visceral violence. A time-travel concept I'm still puzzling over, taking me back to when Termintor blew my teenage mind. And an unexpectedly mature story that speaks to forward looking youth, backward knowing age...and something even more. Something beautiful emerges. From a story filled with terrible people. Terrible motivations. Grace emerges. Tragic grace.
