Visions of Science Fiction – THX 1138 (1971) (June 3)

June 3, 2019

A year-long celebration of under-appreciated science fiction films. Presented by the Film

‘THX 1138’ is a chilling look at a 25th-century totalitarian state where mankind is stripped of any individuality. People are numbered drones, and a government-enforced program of sedating drugs controls the populace. The story’s title character, THX, is a factory worker whose life is irrevocably changed when he stops taking his mind-numbing drugs. Directed by George Lucas (Star Wars)

 

“Neglected on its initial release, this now stands as a classic science fiction movie and one of the most remarkable debuts of the 70s.” – Empire Magazine
