The wait is over! When I picked The Brothers Bloom for Cinematical Movie Club, it came with an added treat -- director Rian Johnson agreed to answer your questions about the film. The responses were whittled down to eleven questions, and now he's weighing in with the answers, talking about how 8 1/2 influenced Bloom, why a '78 Caddy is "a controversial choice," and some details about his upcoming and eagerly anticipated sci-fi film, Looper. (News just hit yesterday via THR'sHeat Vision that Brick star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to star in the film.)

Hit the jump for his answers and stay tuned for more goodies, when Johnson offers his Top Five essential films for Bloom fans and weighs in on his pick for last week's movie club, Paper Moon.
