Egoyan’s thoughtful and thought provoking exploration of materialism, quantification, morality, hidden motivations, and… well, humanity in general – taking a considered look at the lives of three adjusters: an insurance adjuster, a filmboard censor, and a millionaire fantasist, all of whom alter the lives and the perceptions of those around them – is a wonderfully acted (particularly by a never better Koteas) and beautifully crafted film.
