"Remarkable visual mastery and weirdly effective sound style...it's special, and as haunting as parts of 2001: A Space Odyssey."- Roger Ebert

A chilling look at a 25th-century totalitarian state where mankind is stripped of any individuality. People are numbered drones, and a governement-enforced program of sedating drugs controls the populace. The story's title character, THX, is a factory worker whose life is irreovably changed when he stops taking his mind-numbing drugs.
