THE AD­JUST­MENT BU­REAU Philip K. Dick, the late sci-fi writer whose sto­ries and nov­els have been cat­nip for film­mak­ers over the years ( Blade Run­ner, Mi­nor­ity Re­port) gets an­other out­ing with this adap­ta­tion of his 1954 story “Ad­just­ment Team,” a dark tale about look­ing be­hind the cur­tain of re­al­ity. Stars Matt Da­mon and Emily Blunt are ap­peal­ing, but in the hands of de­but di­rec­tor Ge­orge Nolfi (who wrote the script for The Bourne Ul­ti­ma­tum), the mood strays from gritty, provoca­tive sci-fi into ro­mance, and it doesn’t pay off in the long run. Rated PG-13. 107 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Española; Reel Deal, Los Alamos; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. ( Jonathan Richards) AND EV­ERY­THING IS GO­ING FINE By the end of his life in 2004, Spald­ing Gray had amassed a glowing crit­i­cal rep­u­ta­tion and an ador­ing fan base; now di­rec­tor Steven Soder­bergh has cre­ated a bi­og­ra­phy of Gray told mem­oir-style, in Gray’s own voice, through clips from per­for­mances, in­ter­views, and other footage, in­clud­ing con­ver­sa­tions with his fa­ther. It’s an homage for se­ri­ous Gray fans as well as a tan­ta­liz­ing primer for novices just dis­cov­er­ing his work. Not rated. 89 min­utes. CCA Cine­math­eque, Santa Fe. ( Jen­nifer Levin)
