Summary:   Hi

Around two weeks ago I posted the following query about portrayals of NLP in
the movies:

I received 13 replies, one of which was a pointer to a commercial product
video that I can't redistribute. The others suggested the following movies
as containing some appropriate material:

Bladerunner, Clear and Present Danger, Contact, Earth vs. the Flying
Saucers, Face Off, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, In The Code Conspiracy,
Primary Colors, Shooting Fish, Short Circuit, Sneakers, Star Trek, Star
Wars, Three Days of the Condor.

Rather than clutter up this list with the details, I've put together a web
page that contains what the respondents actually had to say about the
movies: you can find this at

If reading this inspires you to think of other candidates, please email me and
I'll add them to the page.

My thanks to the following persons for replying:

Rich Alderson, John Dunnion, Kurt Godden, Shalom Lappin, Stefan M?ller,
Lynne Murphy, Brian Roark, Leonor Santos, Alain Th?riault, Michael Tjalve,
Peter Turney, Dom Watt, Doug Whalen
