One of the great cult classics of neo-western horror/science-fiction is finally given a worthy screen adaptation by the manifest destiny pioneers at HBO feeling ~as close as we’ll ever see to a modern Kubrick film: a potpourri of complex themes on violence, consciousness, existence, white supremacy, artificialized intelligence, psychic dichotomization, etc. 9.5/10.
Plot Synopsis: Westworld isn’t your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park — which is looked after by robotic “hosts” — allows its visitors to live out their fantasies through artificial consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park’s guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged. “Westworld” is based on the 1973 Michael Crichton movie of the same name and features an all-star cast.
