In 1973, Michael Crichton envisioned a future where androids could provide the ultimate fantasy vacation…as long as you had the money, of course. But as with so many “Hubris of Mankind” tales, nothing in "Westworld" went according to plan. Do you guys remember the episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” where the crew left the Holodeck on too long and the ‘people’ living in the town start to question if they were real? Yeah, like that. Only with cowboys and knights and other childhood staples. HBO gave everyone a first look at Ed Harris as the Man in Black — and a peek at how the android sausage is made — in their Year End Tribute. From the “Coming in 2015” section: In tandem with this footage, HBO released the first still image from the set. From Entertainment Weekly: behold! An android who is having a super bad face day.

Next year HBO will be breaking every ratings record known to man when its flagship series, Game Of Thrones, returns to our screens. However, their next show that’s aiming to woo viewers with its dystopian sci-fi madness is their retread of Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie, Westworld. With a cast and crew that boasts some of the industry’s finest pioneers, it’s the production ensemble of Jonathan Nolan, J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk and Jerry Weintraub that lends this adaptation hefty clout.
The former – brother of Christopher Nolan – has now spoken out (via EW) about what we can expect from the series. For those who are unfamiliar with Crichton’s film, the story revolves around a high-tech theme park in the future where androids are installed to fulfil every sordid human whim.

Combine the obsessive detail of Disneyland, the populated virtual immersion of World of Warcraft, and the sinful catering of Las Vegas and you're still nowhere close to the anything-goes theme park in HBO’s new sci-fi series Westworld.

The Face of Love, 2014.
Directed by Arie Posin.
A widow starts a relationship with a man who looks identical to her deceased husband.
The Face of Love is an eerie love story that takes itself a bit too seriously to fully draw viewers in. As the film begins we see glimpses of Nikki (Annette Bening) and Garret’s (Ed Harris) loving marriage in both their home and on vacation in Mexico. They appear to be the perfect couple with a deep connection with each other. After Nikki discovers her husband’s dead body on the beach, Nikki is left to start a new life without her soulmate.
It quickly becomes clear that Nikki is having a hard time letting go of Garret. She thinks about him constantly, still lives in the same house that they shared, and »

Director: Arie Posin
Running Time: 92 Minutes
Synopsis: A widow falls for a guy who bears a striking resemblance to her late husband.
There are a multitude of movies that look at misguided identity in a comedic sense but Arie Posin’s The Face Of Love flips this approach on its head in this commendable and melancholic drama by concentrating on what happens when grief and yearning affects what you see, and what you actually want to see.
Opening with Nikki Lostrom (Annette Bening) and Garret Mathis (Ed Harris) on their 30th wedding anniversary in Mexico, we witness a happy couple celebrating their love with drinks, dancing and pot smoking. It’s entirely natural but we soon learn we’re actually slipping into flashbacks as Nikki sits alone in her house, remembering the past. There’s then no »

Seduced by the chance to live as if her husband were never lost, Nikki spirals into a fantasy of the present as past, while Tom must unravel the mystery behind her immediate and unconditional love.

• Annette Bening: ‘I like being a veteran, I have fewer illusions’
Here is an initially intriguing oddity on the doppelganger theme from Arie Posin, who made a suburbia satire called The Chumscrubber in 2005. It finally unravels into bathos and absurdity, though not without some moments of interest on the way. The Face of Love is not quite a supernatural thriller, nor exactly a romantic drama, nor precisely a study in psychological breakdown. Perhaps it needed a young M Night Shyamalan to endow it with some final whiplash twist. Nikki, a highly strung performance from Annette Bening, is grieving for her adored husband, played by Ed Harris. Then she is astonished to see a certain man who looks exactly like her late husband, also played by Ed Harris. What is going on? »
