Hear the Director’s Commentary on “Looper” In the Theater

posted by Nell Minow

It is not unusual for DVDs and Blu-Rays to include director commentary, but it is unusual to listen to the director’s comments in the movie theater.  “Looper” director Rian Johnson has recorded director has made an audio guide to the film that can be downloaded to an mp3 player or phone and listened to as you watch the film in the movie theater.  According to Slate,

For those still puzzling out the film’s twisty and twirly timeline, Johnson reveals some of the finer mechanics of how the plotting works. He also confirms that the clumsy henchman Kid Blue (Noah Segan) could be Jeff Daniels’ characters’ son—or at least that he’s long enjoyed that theory. And we hear about some of the scenes that didn’t make the final cut: For thoselooking for more of the “My Dinner With Me” scene from the diner, Johnson suggests that there will be much more on the DVD.

For those interested more in the magic of moviemaking, Johnson is particularly open about revealing his intentions—and explaining technical decisions in a way that’s not too wonkish.

And he also points out some insider details — his own parents appear in the film and he has inserted a reference to his groundbreaking earlier film with “Looper” star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  A nice way to sell a second ticket to the film — but please, use earphones!
