I am shamed to think that I have never seen this movie.
I intend to resolve this. George Lucas’ first feature film is coming back to theatres to promote the DVD Release.
In 1971, a visionary filmmaker named George Lucas created a chillingly prescient look at a disturbing future world as his feature film debut. Years ahead of its time, THX 1138 has since attracted a strong following, with its cutting edge visual and sound experience, and provocative and resounding messages.
“We wanted to make a different kind of film, and I hope when audiences see it today, they will find it to be as intriguing as we envisioned,” says Lucas. The film stars Robert Duvall, and is produced by Francis Ford Coppola and his revolutionary American Zoetrope studios.
This fall, this debut film will return as THX 1138: The George Lucas Director’s Cut. It will come to theaters as a special limited engagement, and then to DVD.
