Saw "Adjustment Bureau" over the weekend. It was fun and again had the feel of a 70s thriller, though, as one review pointed out, it was not as dark as most of those. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt are being monitored by an organization which has its own "rules" as to when it can intervene, a bit of a reflection of post 9/11 debates over civil liberties. Some of the meetings between Damon and offficals in the "Adjustment Bureau," particularly Mad Men's John Slattery and Terrence Stamp (General Zod in Superman II), are slightly reminscent of Robert Redford and Hal Holbrook in "All the President's Men."
