The story is set in a futursitic society somwhat similar to George Orwell's 1984. People are identified by 4 digit numbers rather than names and all their movements are under constant scrutiny via computerized cameras. The story revolves around one man (1138) trying to escape from the system. The number of the leader of this society is 0000.


THX 1138:4EB is an impressive little film. The film's plot is the stripped down core of the feature film made by Lucas several years later of the same name. It is amazing what Lucas has achieved at a student level. The locations are amazing. The editing and sound are great. Lucas achieves a future world with so little. By the way, you can get this movie on DVD.
