Here are three films which can be directly related to three philosphical positions. The Truman Show allows us to reflect on Hard Determinism (Honderich), and the view that free will is an illusion. The Matrix allows us to reflect on libertarianism (Kant), and on the question posed by Peter Vardy (see quote below) on whether free will occurs particularly in the context of struggle. Minority Report (2) allows us to consider the question: is free will compatible with determinism (compatibilism: Hobbes or Hume), or "how can we have free will if God has foreknowledge of our actions"?
