the adjustment bureau

i caught the adjustment bureau yesterday afternoon and really enjoyed it.  i thought the movie did two things well: 1) they attempted to answer any questions they could about free will vs fate by carefully explaining everything that was happening in the lives of the two main characters (matt damon and emily blunt).  every time i had a question, they would answer it.  i realize that’s the purpose of the plot but a lot of movies forget that.  the second thing i enjoyed (2) was the style in the film.  say what you will about men in hats, but the characters in the film pull them off flawlessly.  we’re so used to seeing idiots in the clubs and on reality tv with ‘statement’ hats on that we forget hats can be a nice accessory to a well tailored suit.  the suits in the film are updated versions of your classic navy and gray standards.  when i say updated i mean better fitted with barely any break.  they looked great on screen paired with a matching tie.  i’d see it again.  it’s just a shame emily blunt is so hard to look at (kidding of course).
