Plot: 14-year-old Mary (Mischa Barton) just arrived at a presitigous boarding school. She is shy and adjusting to her new surroundings isn’t easy. Fortunately she has two roommates, seniors Paulie (Piper Perabo) and Tori (Jessica Paré). The two take Mary under their wings. Mary soon realizes that Paulie and Tori aren’t just best friends, they are actually lovers. But when the knowledge spreads around school, all of their lives get knocked off-balance.
Lost and Delirious works hard but that doesn’t always translate to success, unfortunately. It does have some good moments, but overall it doesn’t really come together.
Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a looper – gangsters from the future send the people they wish to kill back in time, where the loopers dispose of them. The last person they will dispose of that way will be their older selves, and thereby fulfilling their contract. As it happens, most loopers’ contracts are starting to get closed. But when it’s Joe’s turn, Old!Joe (Bruce Willis) won’t play along and makes a break for it.
Apart from one inconsistency, Looper is an expertly crafted and engaging time travel story. While it is not the greatest film ever made, I did enjoy it a whole lot.
