Chicago – I clearly loved “Looper” as evidenced by my initial review, interview with Rian Johnson, placement of Emily Blunt on my Best Supporting Performances of 2012 piece, and putting it #9 on my Best of 2012. Watching it again in glorious HD, I had a surprising thought given all of the above — I may have underrated it. Johnson’s movie is a genre masterpiece, a stylish, smart, fun, poignant examination of personal responsibility and man’s ability to change. The first time through is so loaded down with story that one can better appreciate the technical elements and performances on repeat viewing. And the excellent special features on the Blu-ray release make it the first must-own of 2013.

Rating: 5.0/5.0

We’ve written so much about the film here that there’s little reason to rehash and so I’ll jump right to the special material. The most notable will be over half an hour of deleted scenes, »
