THX 1138

THX 1138 is a 1971 science fiction film written and directed by George Lucas. It is primarily about two residents of a dystopian future-state where a high level of control is exerted upon the residents through the ever-presence of faceless, android police-officers and the mandatory, regulated use of special drugs that suppress emotion and sexual desire.

It was the first feature-length film directed by George Lucas, and in reality simply a more developed, feature-length version of his student film Electronic Labyrinth THX 1138:4EB, which he made in 1967 while attending the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. It shares themes with The Machine Stops, Anthem, Brave New World, Nineteen Eighty-Four, We, Ira Levin's This Perfect Day, and was inspired in part by the short film 21-87. The film was produced in a joint-venture between Warner Brothers and Francis Ford Coppola's then-new production company, American Zoetrope.
