Watch "Looper" While Listening to the Director's Commentary

Posted on Wednesday, October 10th, 2012 12:08 PM by Scott Jentsch

Commentary tracks are nothing to home video, but this is the first time I've ever seen a director make a commentary available while his movie is still in theaters! Rian Johnson directed Looper, which is an action/adventure movie playing in theaters right now, and it's garnered quite a bit of positive buzz for its time-traveling storyline involving a hit man (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and his future self (Bruce Willis), as well as an axe-wielding Emily Blunt. Our Featured Critic gave it a rare four-star rating, and BigScreen readers have weighed in with their own positive Reader Reviews, so it's definitely something that's on my to-see list.

For those interested in seeing the movie multiple times, Johnson has increased the enjoyment factor by making a running commentary available that you can download and play on your iPod/iPhone or other device that can play the 158MB MP3 file.

If you're going to leave a comment, I humbly suggest that you make your comments useful (not "cool!" but rather "went to the theater again because of this, and it was a great way to enjoy the movie in a different way"), which will encourage him and other directors to do things like this in the future.

To see where Looper is playing near you, head over to the Showtimes page for the movie and make your plans!
