BBC2: PREMIERE Sunday 8 November, 9pm
Thirty years hence, crime syndicates use black market time travel to take out the trash. It’s where old hit men go to die – Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s target is his older self, Bruce Willis. Calmly discussing their predicament over a cup of coffee, Willis and Gordon-Levitt (distractingly altered to look more Brucely) proceed to chase their own tails in ever decreasing circles.
Loopier than a sackful of Twelve Monkeys, Rian Johnson’s stylish sci-fi thriller is a curiously affecting mixture of telekinetic mayhem and The Terminator. After the prissy Brick and Brothers Bloom, the precocious young film-maker was overdue aiming closer to the bullseye.
