520 1  "In this book, a scientist and dedicated film enthusiast 
       discusses the portrayal of science in more than one 
       hundred films, including science fiction, scientific 
       biographies, and documentaries. Beginning with early films
       like Voyage to the Moon and Metropolis and concluding with
       more recent offerings like The Matrix, War of the Worlds, 
       A Beautiful Mind, and An Inconvenient Truth, Sidney 
       Perkowitz questions how much faith we can put into 
       Hollywood's depiction of scientists and their work; how 
       accurately these films capture scientific fact and theory;
       whether cataclysms like our collision with a comet can 
       actually happen; and to what extent these films influence 
       public opinion about science and the future."--Jacket.
