‘The Adjustment Bureau’ is shaping up well
There hasn’t been a lot of hype surrounding The Adjustment Bureau, which frustrates me because this is one of the most promising projects of the year. It’s a large-scale brain fuck based on the story ‘Adjustment Team’ by Philip K. Dick, who, in terms of exploring the possibilities of technological advancement on human beings and their societal structures, is the most brilliant writer of the 20th century. This trailer tells you all you need to know about the plot, and a very strong cast featuring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt is further cause for excitement. The only major variable is novice director George Nolfi, but he’s proven a capable writer in his work on The Bourne Ultimatum, and the shots in the trailer look very well-staged. Science fiction and paranoia junkies ought to be pumped about this one.
