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.

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. Made in 1971, THX-1138 marked the stunning debut of one of the screen's most innovative filmmakers and was produced by Francis Ford Coppola and his revolutionary American Zoetrope studios at the height of the American independent movement.

 Original cut

4 stars for the movie, but unless this includes the original cut it's not worth bothering with. The additions to the directors cut add absolutley nothing,only serving to dilute an otherwise inteligent & beautifully shot movie.

 Beautiful And Visionary Debut.

THX 1138 (1971) is the directorial debut of George Lucas. This movie is a stark and depressing vision of the future but it is based on an intelligent screenplay and beautifully filmed.

Lucas cut his teeth on this low budget movie but you can already see many visuals and sound effects which the filmmaker would continue to use to greater effect in later movies like Star Wars.

Robert Duvall is terrific as the central character but its Lucas vision of the future and the beautiful cinematography which has made this movie into a cult masterpiece.

One thing to watch though. I had a real problem getting this blu-ray to load on my machine. In the end I had to put a USB memory stick into my player just to get enough memory to get to the menu screen.
