Looper (2012)

As posted on Print the Legend by Choc:

Directed by Rian Johnson

Starring: Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt
Rottentomatoes: 93%
IMDB  8.1
Joseph Gordon-Levitt teams up with Director Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom) once again in this time-bending tale of cat and mouse.
JGL is Joe, a looper, an assassin in the present year 2044. A looper’s job is simple: kill or be killed. Joe’s targets are sent to him from the future, the year 2074, where time travel will have been invented but immediately outlawed. In 2074, the forensic know-how and technology are so advanced that criminals cannot get away with murder. Therefore a brand new  enterprise has sprouted where criminals illegally use time-travel to send the intended recipients of their murderous affections 30 years back in time, to 2044, where guys like Joe kill them without fanfare and dispose of the dead bodies.
Joe’s life is of relative convenience. In between jobs, he gets high, makes love to way too gorgeous hookers, and saves half of his paycheck in dreams of going to Paris where he’d like to spend the rest of whatever semblance of life he is living.
