- ‘looper’ was not was i was expecting at all via not having any expectations of it other than ‘wow i love watching joseph gordon levitt do things let me go watch looper’
- joseph gordon levitt did things in this film that i enjoyed
- ‘looper’ is directed by rian johnson
- i did not immediately recognize the name rian johnson but i googled ‘rian johnson’ after watching looper and before writing this and thought ‘oh, i know him’
- rian johnson wrote and directed ‘brick’ (also starring joseph gordon levitt) and ‘the brothers bloom’ (noticeably not starring joseph gordon levitt)
- i saw both of those films in high school and i liked them a lot
- i have ‘brick’ on dvd but i have never re-watched it
- i saw ‘the brothers bloom’ for a second time my sophomore year in college but i had sex during most of it
- originally, the second time i watched ‘the brothers bloom,’ we were watching a british comedy about a gang (??? unsure it was really bad and not notable) but i said something like, ‘this is bad let’s watch the brothers bloom’ so we watched ‘the brothers bloom’ instead
- in ‘looper’ bruce willis is joseph gordon levitt in the future and that is funny to me
- paul dano is in ‘looper’ but they don’t really advertise that he is in looper
- when paul dano appeared on screen i audibly said ‘oh woah’
- i feel like paul dano should be in more things
- ‘put paul dano in more things’ - official endorsement of paul dano by me
- i want to redesign the looper poster to say, in 9 pt. papyrus font, right-aligned next to joseph gordon’s levitt’s face, ‘also paul dano is in this’
- i feel like i can’t talk about ‘looper’ directly via ‘spoilers’
- i enjoyed having a ‘spoiler free’ experience of looper and i want other people to have that
- *spoiler alert* there are some scenes in which jgl’s face ‘caught me off guard’ because it looked like they had put an almost exact replica mask made of silicone of his face over his face. i don’t know why his face looked like this sometimes. it was very odd. *spoiler alert*
- i just looked at the imdb page for ‘looper’ and it turns out that jgl was actually in ‘the brothers bloom’
- he had a brief cameo apparently as ‘a bar patron with guitar’
- there is a really long review in the comments section of the imdb page for ‘looper’ that seems intense
- seems like that review wants to eat my review
- i feel scared of it
- the review that wants to eat my review claims that ‘looper’ is one of ‘the top 10 films of the year’
- i recommend looper

In my stomach I can feel sadness
and a little bit of vomit. My body
swells like a haunted house
for tiny ghosts that kiss
in the middle of the night.

Luna Miguel, poet, journalist and aspiring publisher
A literary wunderkind with an intense online presence, Luna is an anomaly in a generation defined by ‘leaving things for later’. At 21, she’s published two poetry books, curated a third, held a column in a national newspaper (now defunct) and dabbled in publishing.
Dazed Digital: At your age, you’ve only known the recession as a work environment.
Luna Miguel: My friends and I see it as an obstacle we have to overcome. There those who can’t even think of leaving the comforts of the family home, who won’t even try. To those I say: get moving and you’ll achieve something.
DD: You were very involved in the indignado movement. What is your view now?
Luna Miguel: Yes, that was intense. It was the most visible part of a series of things that were happening, in all sections of society. But there is too much to be done and the end doesn’t seem to be near.
DD: If you had to lend a foreigner a book, a record and a film that explained what has happened in Spain in the last three years, which would they be?
Luna Miguel: I wouldn’t. I’d tell them to go into Facebook, or a university hall, or a bookshop or market. If they were here with us, and saw footage of our vomit-inducing politicians, they’d understand the situation very quickly.
