Now that HBO’s Girls has finally premiered, the hate can officially begin. Anything that had that much critical hype was bound that have a strong backlash. One of the critiques I was prepared to read/hear was the lack of diversity on the show.
I’ve been a fan of director Rian Johnson since his debut film, Brick. Although I didn’t love his follow-up, The Brothers Bloom, as much, I still thought it was a pretty good film.
In his latest flick, Looper, Johnson reunites with his Brick star Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, a hitman for a mob in the future. The mob sends people back to the past for Joe to kill until the person sent back is his future self (Bruce WIllis). Hijinks ensue.
