THX 1138 পরিচালনা করেছেন George Lucas

সমালোচকদের রিভিউ

One of the strangest cases in the history of cinema is George Lucas. Because Lucas made this absolute masterpiece, THX 1138 (1971), which is one of the most wonderful and radical films ever… the most visionary, critical, plastically and formally perfect film ever. And then, he was also the one who killed all the freedom of the 1970’s by making Star Wars and a number of other awful films. I wonder how he deals with that in his mind, being the best and worst thing that happened in Hollywood.

The depth of this differential, this span between the old George and the new George, only became clear to me a few years ago, when I had an interconnected movie epiphany that clearly established THX 1138 as not only Lucas’s best film, but as one of the ‘70s’ most powerful political films.

The surprising thing about George Lucas’s first feature (1971), a dystopian SF parable now digitally enhanced and expanded by five minutes, is how arty it seems compared to his later movies: off-center ‘Scope compositions reminiscent of Antonioni, striking white-on-white costumes and sets, a highly inventive sound track by cowriter Walter Murch. Yet the film is just as claustrophobic as Star Wars, and its ideas are equally shopworn, drawing on Orwell, Huxley, Kubrick, and Godard’s Alphaville.

  • Ethan's rating of the film THX 1138

    George Lucas delivers a bleak, nightmarish vision that feels like A Clockwork Orange meets 1984. A hypnotic film that makes you think about the mindlessness of society when emotion is taken out of the equation and one's willingness to break free from the bleakness.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film THX 1138

    A future shock where coherent thought is replaced by numbers. Lucas's debut is an outgrowth of 60s turmoil and his (oft-forgotten) interest in abstract cinema, and it's strange to note that the mixture of ponderousness, bluntness, and silliness that would mar the prequel trilogy has a fitting context here. Some of it stumbles. But the stream of numbers and nightmare imagery ends with a damn near perfect cosmic irony.

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film THX 1138

    Competent but dour assemblage of familiar dystopian themes and tropes. As with most of these things, the projection of then contemporary concerns are as interesting as any exaggerations of a predicted future. It's rather more the son of Huxley and Orwell than a presage to Star Wars, although it's certainly the sour to that film's sweet in the small Lucas canon. Aesthetically striking if thematically hackneyed.

  • msmichel's rating of the film THX 1138

    director's cut 'THX-1138' represents an interesting entry in Lucas' filmography showing us what kind of films he might have made if he had gone in an artistic direction instead of a commercial one. Technically impressive if lacking humanity (applicable here perhaps) the films antiseptic and bureaucratic future is a fascinating one.

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film THX 1138

    Having never been a fan of Star Wars, I miss this incarnation of Lucas more than ever! While American Graffiti is his masterpiece, THX gives its audience a dour, Kubrickian take on an Alphaville-like dystopia; full of wry social commentary on consumerism, voyeurism, the nature of existence. The imagery - drawing heavily on Japanese filmmakers like Yoshishige Yoshida in its monochromatic fragmentation - is astounding.

  • ig_____or's rating of the film THX 1138

    The aesthetic of the movie is quite amazing. The shaved heads, the white clothes, the police robots, the buildings, the sets, the transportation... All pretty cool and hip. However the dialogues and the plot felt a bit dull... I know these are emotionally suppressed characters, but there were times when even the robots seemed more human! Things just didn't flow naturally throughout. It could have been outstanding!

  • Zachary T.'s rating of the film THX 1138

    The perfect antidote for anyone who's ever accused Lucas of being a spectacle-focused, money-grubbing one-trick-pony. Dark, frightening and patiently-paced, "THX 1138" is the inspired work of an angry young artist trapped in a brutally streamlined, disconnected, commercialized world -- and it's arguably even more relevant today than it was in 1971.

  • Andhika Eka Buana's rating of the film THX 1138

    Having seen this now (on 2011) i simply couldn't believe my eyes that this movie was made back in 1971. Just look at the concept (which definitely a straight inspiration for Michael Bay's The Island). And The FX. Truly original. And timeless. Yes. Timeless. Individual could even watch this in year 2354 and it still does not seems old.
