Your friend didn't understand "Only God Forgives" and then went to Modigliani Movie Inquiries and everything...clarified. You don't understand "Looper". He tells you, "Try MMI." So you're here, now. Welcome.
Please, have a seat.
You wait. While waiting, you look around. There is one other chair, across from you, empty, a generic picture on the wall, above the chair, of the beach, and, next to you, a table covered in magazines and advertising pamphlets. You glance at the advertisements. Then notice a TV above the secretary.
Time passes. Finally: "Modigliani will see you now." The secretary smiles and you don't know why exactly (it's because she thinks it's funny to say a private eye will see someone; she laughs every time)
