FREE WILL AND DETERMINISM IN MINORITY REPORT

First, you will want to do some preliminary research about the four films below in order
to determine which one you find most interesting. Note that each film concerns the
philosophical problem of free will and determinism. The films from which you may
choose are as follows:A Clockwork Orange (1971) – free will/determinism
Gattaca (1997) – free will/determinism
Groundhog Day (1993) – free will/determinism
Minority Report (2002) – free will/determinism
Second, you should watch the film carefully, and perhaps multiple times, taking notes as
you watch! Pay attention to the overall plot line, character development, as well as any
relevant details.
Third, you will have to write a 2-3 page (double-spaced, 12pt. Times New Roman)
critical response to the film.
The first section of your critical response should begin with an introduction and brief
summary of the film’s plot, characters, etc.
The second section of your critical response should discuss the philosophical problem of
free will and determinism in general: what is the problem, exactly, and what are its
implications?
The third (and main) section of your critical response should discuss how the film
specifically addresses the problem of free will and determinism: Does it take a particular
stand on the issue? What questions does it raise and what answers (if any) does it suggest
with regard to the issue?
The fourth (and last) section of your critical response should briefly discuss whether or
not you liked the film (and why), and should offer some sort of conclusion.
Note: you should also give your critical response a TITLE and should edit it
carefully for any grammatical/spelling errors!
