THX-1138

Perhaps it’s simply because THX-1138 doesn’t reside in the cultural memory in quite the same way that Star Wars does, but I think that this movie mostly survived George Lucas’ meddling unscathed. I say “I think” and “mostly” because I’ve never seen the non-meddled with/original version. But if this is any indication, maybe Star Wars was one of those two-headed behemoths that altern... read more

You might wonder if George Lucas will ever direct another movie again. The point is that the guy managed first to create one of the most popular franchises ever but then spent the last couple of decades basically trashing the legacy of these beloved movies. I mean, the situation became so bad, he simply handed over the rights to Disney, making sure that he wouldn’t be involved anymore in any fut... read more

" Director: George Lucas His 1st movie My 6th movie watched from the director This movie is so visually interesting and it's amazing how much they got out of it with such a small budget, back when Lucas was experimental and creative in maximizing his ability to make art from constraint. This is an underrated performance by Duvall and perhaps an underrated movie for Lucas. The pacing was a little strange at times and the writing/dialogue was a little tough to adjust to.

RS: 50 Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 1970s (50 movies items)

"As visually and sonically stunning as anything George Lucas would later do in a galaxy far far away, his future-fascistic nightmare is a pure product of the decade’s New Hollywood renaissance, exploring sex, drugs, mind-numbing television, governmental malfeasance, and both the necessity and futility of rebellion. Robert Duvall is quietly tremendous as the movie’s equivalent of 1984‘s Winston Smith. It’s not just a film, it’s a jumping-off point for an alternate universe in which Georg"

"I have always been slightly afraid of watching George Lucas's debut movie, as I had heard such horrible things. I need not worry. This is a complex dystopian drama in which humans are drugged so they cannot think for themselves. When THX 1138 stops taking the pills, he starts thinking and becomes a fugitive on the run. The cinematography is stunning while the stark white gives it a unique feel. Robert Duvall as THX is superb. Ig Lucas stuck to this type of filmmaking: challenging, intelligent an"

The future kind of sucks. (389 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Everything is outlawed, and use of mind-altering drugs is encouraged. The drugs are used to make people, super productive and work super hard, for super long periods of time. Also, everything is video taped and monitored by unseen people, who work from a control room. Year it takes place: Not too distant future."
