George Lucas’s first (and most adult) picture outdoes “Brave New World” in painting a bleak, dehumanized future where every person is given pills to quiet emotions, eliminate sex drive, increase work production and prevent the questioning of authority. In the future, humans live in vast, underground cities, and free will is outlawed by means of mandatory medication that controls human emotion. But when THX 1138 (Robert Duvall) and LUH 3417 (Maggie McOmie) stop taking their meds, they wake up to their desolate reality of their own existence and fall in love with each other in the process. Love is still illegal in this Orwellian dystopia, and the act of making love has made both of them outlaws on the run from an army of robotic police.
Directed by: George Lucas
