Written and directed by Canadian filmmaker Atom Egoyan, The Adjuster is an examination of the sexual quirks of a married couple. Starring such Egoyan regulars as Elias Koteas, Arsinée Khanjian, Maury Chaykin, and Don McKellar, the film focuses on Noah Render (Koteas), an insurance adjuster who enjoys sleeping with his clients, and his wife, Hera (Khanjian), a film censor who finds excitement in making copies of the most explicit parts of the movies she's assigned to review. When they invite Bubba (Chaykin) into their house to make a movie, the Renders find their lives becoming even more complex. McKellar plays a young film censor who works with Hera. ~ Matthew Tobey, All Movie Guide

Egoyan's little worlds by LJSosa April 6, 2003 - 4:33 PM PDT

Atom Egoyan has this habit of creating 'little worlds' for his characters to move in. Those worlds have an element of the surreal however they are just real enough to be really disturbing. In The Adjuster, one can see examples of these disturbing demi-mondes. This is a brilliant film that takes on an almost Lynch-esqe quality. The acting is brilliant as is the direction. Egoyan's attention to detail is brilliant. If you've seen some of his later works (Exotica, The Sweet Hereafter)you must see this one. What you will see is a less refined and somewhat more disturbing framework for his future works.

This title is currently unavailable on disc or is no longer in-print.
