Science Fiction

Phil Bacharach
Hurray for movies with ideas. In Looper, writer-director Rian Johnson crams in so many, it initially looks as if this sci-fi actioner might collapse under the weight of them all. Dystopian society, time travel, telekinesis, gangland killings — there are a lot of ground rules to keep track of here, much of them conveyed through the wobbly device of a narrator.
