Westworld is not your typical amusement park. Designed for wealthy tourists, the futuristic park, which is visited by robots “hosts”, allows its visitors to live their fantasies through an artificial consciousness. No matter how illicit the imagination is, there are no consequences for the guests of the park who can satisfy every wish. Based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 film of the same name, “Westworld” has a stellar cast that includes Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins and Golden Globe winner Ed Harris.
