THE TERMINAL MAN [Director’s Cut] 35mm d. Mike Hodges, 1974 (02 MAY 14:50) / Part of RETURN OF THE OUTSIDER: THE FILMS OF MIKE HODGES at BFI Southbank:

“A computer scientist who suffers from violent seizures agrees to a procedure to have electrodes surgically implanted in his brain to trigger electrical impulses when a seizure is about to happen. Made 48 years ago, and based on Michael Crichton’s novel, THE TERMINAL MAN is a warning about the dangers of mind control and of surrendering too much power to computers.” (BFI)
