Set in the 25th century, THX 1138 is a 1971 science fiction film produced by George Lucas in his directorial debut. The film is written by Lucas and Walter Murch. It stars Robert Duvall and Donald Pleasence and depicts a dystopian future in which the populace is controlled through android police officers and mandatory use of drugs that suppress emotion, including sexual desire. Considered to be an art-house film in relation to Lucas's more spectacular fare, THX 1138 (1971) hints at the wonder and imagination of what was still to come.
