In the 21st century, Steven Spielberg grew up. The overwhelmingly bleak subject matter took a toll on the director — he would return to his rented home from the set and literally break down sobbing.

Jun 21, · 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.
