Using strong visuals and astonishing sound effects to heighten the gripping story, George Lucas gave the world advance notice of his formidable talent with his classic debut feature THX-1138, adapted from his award winning short film with the encouragement of none other than Francis Ford Coppola. Robert Duvall is THX-1138, a humble worker in a soulless, sprawling subterranean society where each person has a number, not a name, sex is outlawed and laws are enforced by constant surveillance and sinister, silver faced androids. His discovery that there is more to life than the state-required drug stupor and the loss of his mate to a sinister technician finally gives him the courage to recover from his nightmare world.
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 a harrowing attempt to escape from a world where thoughts are controlled, freedom is an impossiblity and love is the ultimate crime.
