The Naughton Gallery presents Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park as part of its SCREEN/PRINT series in collaboration with UsFolk, featuring a Q&A and free posters by illustrator Martina Scott.
More than 25 years after it first blew the minds of audiences, Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park remains one of the most awe-inspiring films from the cinematic king of inspiring awe.
At the time the film’s CGI was the most realistic and amazing moviegoers had ever seen, yet what makes the film still hold up to today’s lofty technological standards is the combination of CGI with animatronics. The result is a film that feels nostalgic without looking dated.
The story, part sci-fi, part horror, part action, is pure Spielberg. It also has one of the best and most underrated scores the great John Williams ever composed and a cast that features the unlikely combination of Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, Samuel L. Jackson and Sir Richard Attenborough.
