Minority Report revisit

- - -
For some mysterious reason, I rewatched the whole thing. That was the third time. The first time was when it came out in 2002, the second time was about 3~4 years later. Each time I got some more out of it.

Two salient points this time:

(1) How beautiful the score sounds... Schubert's Symphony No. 8 (no wonder), and John Williams taking inspiration from Bernard Hermann...

(2) The character Danny Witwer is actually kind of cool... though in the end his ambitiousness and eagerness to please have contributed to his downfall.
