10 Mysteries from Looper explained by the director. SPOILERS


LINK

A few of the questions are kind of obvious but there's an answer for why a Looper has to close his own loop. That didn't bother me much but I saw the question posed here a good bit.

quote:

6. Why is it essential for a looper to close his own loop?

This is another one of those questions Johnson had answered in his head but didn’t put in the movie. In fact, he even conceived a scene with Abe addressing it but never shot it.

“People in the future, all they know about time travel is to be afraid of it. So they’re trying to keep it as tight as possible. So the initial reason they set it up this way was to keep the causality loop as tight as possible,” Johnson said. Because, for example, if someone else kills your older self and you have to exist with your own murderer for 30 years, what’s stopping you for murdering them or doing something to screw everything else up? ”Every bit of evidence is gone from that loop when you kill yourself,” he said.

The question I had was that since they showed Old Joe would suddenly have memories of new things that Young Joe did as the movie progressed, why didn't Old Joe suddenly remember his realization as Young Joe that killing the kid's mom caused the kid to become the Rainmaker?

The realization didn't happen until the second before Young Joe shoots himself. Hence the cutscene with Young Joe seeing how everything plays out.

Wow, great point.

I guess it was pretty split second.

In the timeline where Joe lives long enough to become old Bruce Willis why is there a rainmaker? Cid's mom was not killed so he shouldn't have become evil and been forcing the loopers to close their loops.
