THX-1138 (DIRECTOR'S CUT) — CLASSIC FILM PICK
Set in the 25th century, the high concept story envisions a totalitarian state lacking privacy and individuality where its citizens are manipulated by mandatory drugs. Robert Duval plays a government-controlled factory worker named THX-1138 who is separated from his government-appointed “roommate” LUH (Maggie McOmie) when authorities become aware of their drug-evasion and sexual interaction. THX-1138 attempts to find LUH and escape their over-populated underground city.
Tedious pacing contributes to the confusing nature of the movie, but George Lucas’ restored “THX-1138” is essential viewing to distinguish his artistic vision before he transformed Hollywood a few years later with "Star Wars" and the franchise that followed.
Rated PG. 88 mins.
