It's been a while since I have seen this film
on Cable TV
, but I find it a great commentary
on the idea (from 1970, mind you) that people
will be control
led with drugs
, anyone?) in the future
. THX 1138 (played by Robert Duvall
) is a worker in a robot factory
who didn't take his drugs leading to him making his "domestic partner"-type woman LUH 3417 (Maggie McOmie
) pregnant. You can see him taken to a "white room" prison with no escape in sight. THX 1138's final car chase against the robot cops
is a solemn, quiet one leading to the ending...
By the way, please watch the widescreen version -- the formatted version I rented years ago is badly made for us to see, let alone understand...
