One of the best science fiction films in recent years,
This review is from: Looper (DVD)
"Looper" is a sci-fi actioner about a young man who is a looper, or basically, a hit man of the future. He closes loops, or the lives of people sent to him to be killed by him. But the film takes a dramatic turn when he is called upon to close his own "loop." The movie pays homage to great science fiction films that came before it, like "Blade Runner." The acting is solid, and the cast assembled here is excellent. Rian Johnson, the writer/director, also made a great noir movie called "Brick," which I also reviewed on Amazon. If you like action films, science-fiction films, or movies that will get you talking afterward and asking what the heck just happened, Looper is a movie you won't want to miss. It's worth the time invested. However, it's a struggle to truly understand and keep up with everything that is happening, which will no doubt turn some people off.

How's the violence / nudity in this film? Is it graphic?

Yes I would say it is somewhat graphic.
