No spoilers here. Just a thought about 'unknown' time travel films for those into Looper and stuff.

Anyone see "Stealing Time" ? (2011)
It is a 15 minute film.
These are official uploads by the studio.

I thought this was going to be an April Fool's joke, like, "HAHA THERE ARE NO FILMS LIKE LOOPER!" :D

I believe Rian mentioned in an interview that part of why he liked Bruce Willis for Looper was his role in Twelve Monkeys.
Perhaps Twelve Monkeys had some influence when Rian wrote Looper. But ultimately, no film is quite like Looper in the
combination of it's construction, premise, and tone though you may be able to find similar elements of Looper that give
it similar appeal in other films. Perhaps start with Twelve Monkeys.

Much like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is not really like In Bruge but after watching the two uncategorize-able films you could place them
in a genre together though the genre is not known.

So I saw Man of Steel the other day. My extended comments are in another thread, but come on: super baby raised by a single mother on a farm in Kansas? They obviously stole half the plot from Looper.

Wasn't 12 Monkeys based on Chris Marker's La Jetee? awesome film, made from stunning photographs.

Chris Marker is a legend. La Jetee is great, and the time machine in Looper is so much like La Jetee, I love it.

I'd love to see some sort of mash up of animated gifs to the looper audio.
