The short student film that served as the springboard for George Lucas' first feature, THX 1138:4EB is a spare, stark examination of a future dystopia in which one man fights to maintain his identity under the watchful eye of an Orwellian state. Starring Dan Natchsheim in the role that would later be played by Robert Duvall, the dialogue-free film involves the various modes of surveillance levied on the titular lead character, and his numerous attempts at escape.
