Exactly! It's like you hadn't quite got the noir out of your system yet.

Secondary thought: it doesn't bear any real resemblance in tone or style to Philip K. Dick, even though (I'm pretty sure?) you said that you'd been reading a lot of his work at the time. The story definitely feels like something Dick could have come up with, but the delivery is not like him at all.

So different to what it became! I like seeing the evolution of things like that. Thank you for sharing it with us!

This is why I am in love with this messageboard. I love seeing stuff in its raw form too or even what I call "starter films" ( like Scorcese's Who's That Knocking at Your Door, you know when you see the potential, but you can tell they aren't fully confident yet) from directors. Thanks Rian!!!

Even when Rian said he first conceived of Looper as a low-budget short film, I couldn't quite imagine fitting any of that story and that world into something small. But the amount of the concept he managed to squeeze into what could have conceivably been shot in a weekend for spare change...kind of reminds you why we're all here.

Great insight into the story's evolution. Dialogue a decade old, the pocket watch, letting your loop run, the loss of his wife, the selfless action of the climax -- all in the final product. Thanks for sharing!
