George Lucas – THX 1138 [Directors Cut] (1971)

A chilling exploration of the future is also a compelling examination of the present in George Lucas’ ‘THX 1138’, starring Robert Duvall as a man whose mind and body are controlled by the government. THX makes an harrowing attempt to escape from a world where thoughts are controlled, freedom is an impossibility and love is the ultimate crime.

“What we were interested in doing is making a film from the future rather than about the future. We’re looking at a film from a foreign country, whose custom and habits and cinematic language we’re really not familiar with…. This did make for a little confusion in the audience that did see it — but that was, to a certain extent, part of our intent.”— Walter Murch

  1. A rather hybrid version: “Director’s cut” means it’s the 2004 version including quite a lot of CGI. This digital imagery breaks firmly with the 1971 original version, and so to speak fails a bit.
