Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been busy this summer. This weekend in Looper he plays a man hired by the mafia to kill and dispose of agents sent from the future.
"It's the real hot movie of the fall and some people have chosen it as their favorite of the year," says local movie critic Alice Reese. She adds the time travel plot is complicated and takes a lot of energy to absorb, but "I think it's very satisfying."
Alice is also high on this weekend's debut of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which captures the challenges of a high school teenager.
She also previews the 3D animation Hotel Transylvania and Pitch Perfect.
