An unusual science fiction movie that's a stark contrast to the later films George Lucas would be better known for. Both in style and tone.

George Lucas's first feature is a slow and thoughtful film, different and strange for the Star Wars director. The performances he draws out of Duvall and McOmie are nuanced and haunting. The film presents a chilling and depressing view of an Orwellian future and does a lot with very little, in terms of SFX and set design.

I've only seen the 'Director's Cut', which from my understanding is essentially the same movie as before, but with tweaked scenes and added special f/x. Lucas just can't help but change his existing movies. However, unlike the updated versions of the original 'Star Wars' trilogy, Lucas manages to use these new additions effectively and make them not stand out near as much. Some of them actually slightly improve the film. This is a uniquely weird 70's sci-fi film that has more going on under the surface. It's worth repeat visits to find it's layered qualities.

This is another one of those movies that I think I could fall in love with. It is very odd and complex (surprising coming from Lucas) but it lacks a definite meaning. I don't know if I would like it though with out the director's cut. Hmmmm

"THX 1138" by Yojimbo

In a Big Brother style future society where the population are controlled through sedation and a robotic police force, two of its inhabitants decide to rebel and leave their clinical, oppressive environment. Based on a student project Lucas made himself some years earlier, THX 1138 is one of those 70s "concept" sci-fis sharing ideas with the likes of Logan's Run and Planet of The Apes and has been very influential in itself over the years. The idea of a subdued, barcoded and identical populace has since passed into cliche, but this film was one of the first to explore the idea and stylistically it's still marvellous. Lucas shows a great eye for composition and the production design of the robots and vehicles in particular still looks great, as does Lucas' clever choices of location. Unfor...
