This fall, join the Linda Hall Library for a retrospective film series of Michael Crichton movies. In his work, Crichton demonstrated a keen ability to anticipate new technological developments long before they became reality and predict how even seemingly beneficial breakthroughs in biotechnology or artificial intelligence could quickly spiral out of their creators' control.
The second film in the series is Westworld from 1973, written and directed by Crichton.Find out more »
