While some of the songs on this soundtrack are throwaways when not listened to within the context of the movie, others like "Time Machine" have amazingly unique drum rolls and clicks overlayed on top of some haunting orchestra. Great movie and a great soundtrack to go along with it.

Looper is a high-concept science fiction action movie, directed by Rian Johnson and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt. The film takes the concept of time-travel and mixes it with organized crime; in the future, when the mob wants to take someone out, they use the newly invented but highly illegal time-travel technology to send someone back in time, whereupon they are immediately killed by a Looper - an assassin in the past. Joe (Gordon-Levitt) is one such looper, and is good at his job - until he realizes that his latest victim, just sent back in time, is the future version of himself... Critics have called Looper one of the most intriguing science-fiction movies in several years, and young director Rian Johnson is quickly becoming heralded as a new and exciting cinematic visionary.

Providing the score for Looper is 37-year-old Colorado-born composer Nathan Johnson - the cousin of the director - who spent a great deal of time living and working in the United Kingdom in the 2000s, and is a founder member of the touring band The Cinematic Underground. Nathan made his film music debut comparatively recently, when he scored Rian's first two films, Brick in 2005 and The Brothers Bloom in 2008, but Looper is by far his most high profile and ambitious project to date. For Looper, Johnson took a standard small orchestra, featuring mainly strings and piano, and augmented them with a massive array of sampled sounds and processed percussion effects, ranging from trash can lids, an oscillating fan, and gunfire to hammered PVC tubes and fire alarms.

When Rian Johnson made his feature debut with Brick he brought along his cousin to write the score. That family partnership continued on The Brothers Bloom and now on Looper. Nathan Johnson has very quickly established an identity for himself in the 5 features he has composed (3 of them directed by his cousin). Looper puts him to the test with a science fiction thriller, and those score are always tricky. However, Johnson nails it with this textured, percussive, and intriguing score. The entire sound has a sense of intrigue and mystery infused in the energy, which is never over the top or loud. It's definitely a lean and solid score.

The score doesn't have any excess to it, and by that I mean that it really is stripped down to a few distinct elements. The percussion is the most notable characteristic of the music. This is backed with pulsating strings that drive most of the score. The score isn't all propulsive action though, and much of it in the second half is quite brooding. There is bubbling tension throughout and the music really grows on you as you listen. The intricate textures are always there, but Johnson pulls them back on some tracks to let the strings stew for a bit. The one thing that is missing from the score is emotional depth. I know this is more of a conceptual film than a contextual one, but I felt like there wasn't enough character in the music. The track "Her Face" does a nice job of teasing us with a touching motif, but it quickly fades away and we're back to tick-tacks and strings. The ending is very nice though as everything comes full circle and is wrapped up superbly.

There is some emotion in the music, but not enough for me to really grasp onto this score. It was very enjoyable and a nice entry from Johnson, but it comes at face value.
