Roger Ebert on Minority Report

April 6, 2013

The death of Roger Ebert earlier this week deserves (at least) a reference. Here is a link to his review of Minority Report, which we’ll be discussing on Monday. A here’s the first paragraph to give you a feel for what Ebert thought:

At a time when movies think they have to choose between action and ideas, Steven Spielberg’s “Minority Report” is a triumph–a film that works on our minds and our emotions. It is a thriller and a human story, a movie of ideas that’s also a whodunit. Here is a master filmmaker at the top of his form, working with a star, Tom Cruise, who generates complex human feelings even while playing an action hero.
