With the release of 'Looper,' rediscover 10 timeless movies about time travel By Glenn Kenny Special to MSN MoviesIn the innovative, bracing sci-fi thriller "Looper," Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a living-for-kicks assassin who's managed to rationalize an appalling existence in which he's someday going to be obliged to kill his future self.

Don't worry; this twisty, twisted time-travel scenario is told very deftly by writer-director Rian Johnson, so there's no way you'll miss a trick.
