Looper is what a sci-fi film should be. Set in two futures, time travel has been outlawed, so the mob uses it to eliminate undesirables. The makeup used to make the young-old characters resemble each other is excellent, along with the performances. How the events in one time effect the other is fascinating and special effects are used well. I liked this film.

The story of a family making a living from moonshine in depression era, rural Virginia is warm, violent, and driven. In Lawless we meet the Bondurant family who run a successful business running moonshine during prohibition. When greed and ambition kick in trouble follows. There are even a few love stories woven into the plot. The violence is incredibly bloody, but warranted. This film is well acted and shot. An interesting story. I liked this film.

There are people who have no problem lying to get what they want. Money, fame and, yes, love. In the documentary The Imposter a young man assumes the identity of a missing boy to gain access to the US and a family that will love him. Crazy story, and it's true! I liked the structure and editing in this documentary as well. Nice job.
