Still Watching the Skies: Episode 95 “Disclosure”

Nat, Cody, and Robert are reporting to HR to talk about 1994’s DISCLOSURE, based on a Michael Crichton novel, and what makes a science fiction film.

Erotic thrillers and Michael Crichton blockbusters were both big in the 1990s. DISCLOSURE is where the two intersect on a Venn diagram. And, as expected, it was dynamite at the box office grossing over $200 million worldwide on a $50 million budget. And, even today, you can see its relevance as a thriller involving a tech startup and alleged sexual harassment. Perhaps things haven’t changed that much in the meantime.


Or perhaps things have changed. Have red lines moved over the years? Whose side is Michael Crichton on? And do the people that have always skated through still skate through?



And what makes a science fiction film anyways. There’s only one real science fiction element in DISCLOSURE. How vital to the film is it anyways? And, does it matter?
