“WESTWORLD SEASON 2: THE DOOR”
Thandie Newton earned an Emmy Award for this second season of the HBO drama series, adapted heavily from a concept devised by Michael Crichton for a 1973 movie. Guests and others are threatened by the freed “hosts” at an amusement park where humanoids rebel against their programmed responses and embark on their own, frequently lethal form of liberation. Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris, James Marsden, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Luke Hemsworth, Louis Herthum, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward and Anthony Hopkins also are in the excellent cast. DVD extras: two “making-of” documentaries.
