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 impossibility and love is the ultimate crime.

Fairly dull, ruined by George Lucas's modifications - THX 1138 review by cw

Spoiler Alert

Was looking forward to this as an early sci fi work from George Lucas. I wasn't expecting a blockbuster and it was interesting for a while, but soon got very tedious with the jarring inclusion of digital additions that were clearly outside the original films budget and vision. Why does George Lucas insist on tinkering with his past work like this? I don't know if an original cut is available, but if it is, avoid this at all costs and try to get hold of a copy of the original.

Wouldn't recommend to anybody but sci fi obsessives and completists.
