Noir to near-future: ‘Looper’ director Rian Johnson talks sci-fi, Twitter, and the fate of film

And it was also — narratively — I felt like the audience had a lot to absorb already, and so I didn’t want them to have to wrap their heads around some big concept in terms of the world. And so keeping it kind of just recognizable as a slightly dystopian future… in a lot of ways, I feel like it’s a world that we’ve seen before. And that was intentional. Just so the audience can kinda look and say, “Okay, I know where we’re at. We’re in near-future, and stuff is broken down. Okay, I get it.”
