Michael Crichton's directorial debut, WESTWORLD is the direct
precursor to JURASSIC PARK as the story of a technological
amusement park gone out of control, with tourists becoming victims.
For $1,000 a day, patrons can visit high-tech recreations of
historically based mythical settings controlled by lifelike
androids and synthetic environments: a Roman world that recreates
tales of ancient Rome; a medieval world that recreates the legends
of the Middle Ages; and Westworld, which recreates the myth of the
classic Western. Two Chicago businessmen, Martin (Richard Benjamin)
and Blane (James Brolin), spend their vacation in Westworld, where
they live out their fantasies of the Old West mythology: chaotic
barroom brawls, random love with beautiful prostitutes, and a
violent jailbreak during which they shoot the local sheriff. But
the complex technology that supports these fabricated worlds
develops complicated syndromes faster than the scientists behind
the scenes can resolve them. Soon the entire resort breaks down
into chaos, and the androids turn hostile on the visiting tourists.
WESTWORLD is both a retread on classic science fiction themes and a
precocious critique of the false values and artificiality of the
encroaching mass culture.
