Westworld Timeline

Season 1 had hinted at a world beyond the park where all disease was cured; apparently, that wasn’t the case for absolutely all illness, since James Delos mentions the irony of being killed by the very disease he cut research funding for. Also expanded upon in this episode are new revelations about Bernard: We knew he was built in Arnold’s image, but now it’s clear that Delos never broke the secret to immortality. Therefore, Bernard cannot be Arnold. Bernard is his own person… maybe.

Movie Review: Monsoon Shootout’s Biggest Strength Is Its Cast

Director Amit Kumar ‘s Monsoon Shootout premiered for the first time in Cannes Film Festival in 2013 and it has taken a good four years to have a mainstream release in India.
The film luckily doesn’t show much weariness as Rajeev Ravi’s dimly lit frames and Gingger Shankar’s powerful background score lends it the much-needed foreboding tone.
Monsoon Shootout is more of a whydunnit – a psychological thriller that explores the notion of justice and if the end in fact does justify the means.
