Minority Report (Spielberg, 2002): Screen on the Green, 10.30am

Those wonderful programmers at Everyman Screen on the Green are putting on a 35mm Steven Spielberg season (full details here) with the arrival of The Fabelmans due later in January. This film is also being screened on February 4th. Details here.

Guardian review:
Here is the movie Steven Spielberg should have made instead of AI. It's a fantastically confident and exhilarating thrill-ride into the future which far more satisfactorily combines Kubrick's chilly sense of the alienating and the bizarre with Spielberg's own mastery of sugar-rush suspense tactics. Based on a Philip K Dick short story - and what self-respecting new sci-fi venture is not? - this is a futuristic noir thriller in the Blade Runner mode about a driven cop played by lean, mean Tom Cruise.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
