THX 1138: Special Edition is the 1971 expansion to feature length of a student film by now legendary science fiction blockbuster director George Lucas (Star Wars). THX 1138 (Robert Duvall, Apocalypse Now) is a proletarian worker in a dull, machine-controlled underground society in the 25th Century, where every human need is scrupulously regimented and love is forbidden. Human nature is unchangeable, though, and his rebellious female roommate, LUH 3417, (Maggie McOmie) willingly switches THX's daily dosage of State-provided soul-numbing narcotics with stimulants, and THX painfully awakens. Soon they start making love. To further complicate matters, SEN 5241 (Donald Pleasance, Halloween), THX's homosexual neighbor, murders his roommate and plans to change the computed roommate matching system so he and THX end up living together. They are all caught for their individual crimes and are sent to prison, a vast white expanse where the criminal, the senile, the deformed, and the insane are housed together.
