    The Adjustment Bureau

    ★★½

    True love conquers all with some engaging flirting and surprisingly little jeopardy save the odd ballet injury.

    This is akin to a marinade. You sink in, allowing the flavours to meld all around with a comforting sweetness but also an increasing piquancy that only comes through fully as the fusing becomes more profound with the interaction between sweet and sour, surface and the depth, allowing the fully rounded nature of the relationship to emerge into a whole that then brings forth new flavours. One to savour.

    A film which is indeed a ‘temporal pincer movement’: very very boring going forwards and very very boring going backwards. Xanax is also a palindrome. Better to take one than watch this nonsense.

    This absolutely had me from the point at which fork lift trucks are shown moving to the accompaniment of the Blue Danube waltz in an empathetic paean to supermarket workers.
