    I don't know why but I feel that this movie would be weird for Matt to direct. But you never know...

    It's not his passion project so I don't think he would direct it as a first project.

    An interview with Matt and Emily and a rave review from an Australian TV journalist:

    The Variety review is mixed but mostly positive:

    An interview about Oscar nods for his co-stars and filming in Chicago:

    A very positive review at the Hollywood Reporter, including:

    George Nofi pulls off a relative rarity in his feature film debut -- which stars Matt Damon and Emily Blunt -- by creating a genuinely romantic fantasy suspense thriller.

    With vibes from such recent clever films as The Matrix, Duplicity and Inception darting through this adaptation of a Philip K. Dick short story, first-time director George Nolfi has pulled off a relative rarity -- a genuinely romantic fantasy suspense thriller -- in The Adjustment Bureau. Quite low-tech as these things go and a great New York location film in the bargain (no Toronto doubling here, thank you very much), the picture nimbly scampers all over the city while betraying a disarmingly whimsical attitude toward the central couple's peculiar peril. Although more accessible conceptually and dramatically than either the Wachowskis' or Nolan's films, and possessing far more heart, this classy Universal release might nonetheless be perceived as too brainy and sophisticated for lowest common denominator mass consumption, indicating good but not great box-office results.

    Equally responsible for keeping the viewer on the film's side is the excellent rapport between Damon and Blunt. Incorporating known aspects of Damon's personality -- his political interests, athleticism and thoughtfulness -- into the role helps David quickly assume three-dimensional stature. Damon also strongly conveys the character's wounded side as well as his sense, when it comes to Elise, of bewilderment and persistent hope. It's a satisfying, full-bodied performances.

    For her part, this is the best Blunt has been onscreen since her early work in My Summer of Love and The Devil Wears Prada and certainly the film in which she seems most vibrant and alive in a romantic pairing; Elise sasses and tests David at every turn up to the point when she allows herself to become vulnerable and honest. For the film to pay off, it's imperative that you believe in these two despite it all. And you do.

    Matt and cast interviewed on a special set on Cinemax Saturday night:

    Bourne Legacy contenders include all the usual suspects (including Kellan Lutz!):
