  1. Great review! Reminds me of all the depth to the movie. I’m going to watch it again. Didn’t know the bit about the writer’s collaboration on Looper. Would’ve loved to know what his part that was cut was. Also, I thought the end was an implication of militarized intentions. BTW, I really agree with your comments about small budgets and practical effects making you work harder and more creatively, Star Wars and Matrix come to mind.

    Also, just added Antiviral and Holy Motors to my queue, they look great. Some more recommendations:
    -Safety Not Guaranteed
    -The INtouchables
    -Tomorrow, when the War Began
    -The Wall
    -Chocolate (fury)
    -Four Lions
