The Adjustment Bureau

I saw The Adjustment Bureau last week and loved it. Based on yet another Philip K. Dick story, and one of the better adaptations of his work. Funny, engaging, well-acted, well-crafted. Not as mind-blindingly complex as Inception, not as expensive as Avatar, just a smooth execution of a good concept. The kind of film that makes me excited about writing and reading and watching and thinking. Highly recommended.

There are a lot of SF films coming out this year, but I could easily see this ending up on the Best Dramatic Presentation Long Form shortlist for the Hugos.

Cool. Nice to see a good review. I've been umming and aahing about whether to go and see it and you've just convinced me. Thanks Lou.
