Kansas City, 2044. “Time travel has not yet been invented, but 30 years from now, it will have been.” So begins Looper, the third film from writer-director Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom), a future-noir science-fiction film that oozes style and nearly matches it with high-concept, time-travel substance.
