Minority Report: Existentialism Vs Romanticism

In 1956 Philip K. Dick wrote the short story “The Minority Report” that posed a poignant philosophical question: is the future set in stone? Can we change it? Fast forward to 2002 where Spielberg and company have taken the themes established by Dick and developed them into a critique of where the future is heading and how it will effect society and individuals. Aesthetically and thematically the critique centers around romanticism versus existentialism.
