A scrupulously crafted vision of benevolent oppressiveness, THX 1138 exudes a creamy hypnotism and resonates strongly.

Austere, cerebral, and sometimes maddeningly cold, it would seem that THX 1138 is the visual and tonal opposite of the space western Star Wars.

In spite of its flaws, THX 1138 holds up remarkably well.

One of the slowest and most deliberately minimalist science fiction films ever made.

Lucas described THX as 'an artifact from the future,' and we're supposed to struggle for understanding. That's part of its hypnotic undertow.

The whole thing feels like a hypnotic dreamscape, so luminously stark, from its white-on-white abstract sets to the wide-eyed, bald, near catatonic residents of this world.

It's an impressively unified vision, with sterile set design, a wonderfully crisp and creepy sound design by Walter Murch.

Valuable in illustrating what stylish imagination without much cash can accomplish for starters, even in California.

Meditative and downbeat rather than crowd-pleasing.

This new, highly polished upgrade is a nice gift for science fiction fans.

An impressive accomplishment -- sadly tarnished in this new release by Lucas' mania towards tweaking his old films with the latest special-effects technology.

Robert Duvall is a worker drone in a futuristic nightmare, man. Until he stops taking his pills and sees how groovy the world can be. Trippy.

The most remarkable thing about THX 1138 is its unsettling sound design, pieced together by Lucas and Walter Murch.

The movie's strength is not in its story but in its unsettling and weirdly effective visual and sound style.

Movie Metropolis

...while hardly a world-beating movie, it is certainly worth a look, if only for its atmosphere and, well, its look.

May be a naively simple variation on that other George-Orwell-but it remains a dazzling triumph of creativity and style over financial limitations.

| Original Score: 3/4

If Star Wars was Lucas' vision of a Buck Rogers future, THX 1138 is his mordantly funny Metropolis.
