One of 2002's most highly acclaimed films, Minority Report, directed by Steven Spielberg, comes to DVD in a two-disc set. Everything is in the right place with this release, starting with the image. Framed at 2.39:1 and anamorphic (a severely cropped pan and scan version is available in a separate set), the washed-out, over-saturated visual style of director of photography Janusz Kaminski is produced with exacting measures. The intentional murkiness and overall cold color patterns are perfectly realized. There are plenty of signs of grain: just as it should be. Equally impressive are both the 5.1 English Dolby Digital and DTS tracks. Each is forceful in all respects, with just enough surround material to accentuate the aural experience, while never sacrificing dialogue or subtle sound effect clarity. The second disc in this set contains all of the supplemental materials (no, as usual, the first disc does not contain a Spielberg commentary, though it would be about time). Broken up into six sections, each contains small featurettes organized by longtime collaborator Laurent Bouzereau. These range from two-and-a-half up to nearly ten minutes, and while that may not seem impressive, the overall total runs around 90 minutes. Sections include detailed looks at the visual effects of ILM, locations, stunts, extensive art galleries, trailers, biographies, and much more. Numerous interviews from those involved, including actors Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell, production designer Alex McDowell, costume designer Deborah Scott, composer John Williams, and many others, flesh out this detailed look behind the scenes. While maybe not quite up to the standards of other two-disc sets, there is still a wealth of information on making this impressive film. Coupled with outstanding visual and auditory elements, this DVD deserves as much praise as the film itself.
