The high contrast look of Minority Report can be misleading. In this shot the blacks are actually lifted and highlights are a good bit below max. This allows for a nice smooth roll off into black and a feeling of deep deep shadows without having a crushed or crunchy clipping feel. The highlights also have a bloom that softens the hard contrast and adds a dream like layer to the experience, as if a subtler version of the pre-cognition seen by the oracles of the film. This relationship heightens the experience in its assertion that the plot is itself a premonition of our own real world future.
