I first saw THX-1138 16 years ago. I thought it was weird then. I bought the dvd 2 years ago, but only got around to watching it again recently. It's still a weird movie. In some ways it is an arty movie. It's not your conventional sci-fi movie. It's hard to believe this was directed by the same man that directed Star Wars movies. Thx-1138 is quite a contrast to Star Wars- right down to the masturbation machine. I like THX-1138, but the dialogue is crazy: "2345 we have a 29 in a 342. Could you get 4345 to get 29 to help 2345?"
