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.
