< 1 day ago
Special Guests: Brian Jay Jones, Matthew Wilder, Maggie McOmie, Bruce Chesse, Sid Haig
Guest Co-Hosts: Jay Bauman, Chris Bricklemyer
The first feature film from director George Lucas, THX-1138 (1971) features a world in which love is outlawed and mind-altering drugs are mandatory. The film stars Robert Duvall as the titular THX-1138 and Maggie McOmie as LUH-3417 as roommates who eventually develop into something much more despite the totalitarian regime in which they live.
Co-written by Walter Murch, the film ponders materialism, religion, and love.
Chris Bricklemyer (Outside the Cinema, Are You Serious?) and Jay Bauman (Red Letter Media) join Mike to discuss Lucas's freshman film, how its themes would echo in his other work, and how he revised it in the 2004 "director's cut."
