On this week's podcast, the guys break down Steven Spielberg's 2002 adaptation of Philip K. Dick's Minority Report, starring Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell. The Bit Players dig deep into the efficiency of 2054's Washington D.C. pre-crime unit, marvel at how they stopped a single murder at all with such an insane system, but mostly just sit back and take solace in the fact that Cops is still on air. They discuss how quickly it takes for Cruise to enter full-on sprint in this movie, perhaps the fastest in his career, the interesting ways that Spielberg plays with tone in such a serious world, and the brilliant performance from Max von Sydow, who was also in the Seventh Seal. Don't forget, Max von Sydow, actor in the Seventh Seal.
