TIFF ’12: Video interview with ‘Looper’ composer Nathan Johnson

The opening night film at the Toronto International Film Festival sets a certain tone for the entire event. Because the festival is just so big, featuring hundreds of films over the course of its eleven day schedule, TIFF represents a lot of different things to different people. That makes the opening gala film an important symbol for TIFF, and Rian Johnson’s Looper was nothing short of an iconic choice for this year’s first film.

There were a lot of great films screening yesterday, on Friday, including Martin McDonagh‘s Seven Psychopaths, but I’ll get to that in a minute.
