The director's cut of George Lucas's
widely influential first film, the prescient
science-fiction adventure THX 1138, will
open in theatres in New York and twenty
other cities before it debuts on DVD
September 14 from Warner Home Video.
Made in 1971, THX 1138 marked the
stunning debut of one of the screen's
most innovative filmmakers and was
produced by Francis Ford Coppola and
his revolutionary American Zoetrope studios.
Produced at the explosive dawn of the American independent movement, THX
1138 stars Robert Duvall in a thought-provoking and visually rich
exploration of a theme that would repeat itself throughout Lucas's career:
One man's quest to realize his own potential amid an oppressive society.
