THX 1138 1971,  PG)
THX 1138
Very surprising movie. I was expecting it to look far more dated, but it was really very well done in that respect. The dystopia itself was sort of a mix-up of 1984, Brave New World, Brazil & The Time Machine. The beauty of it was that it didn't hold your hand like most American movies do these days, so a lot was left unspoken or at a loose end. That, and that the human nature shown was pretty realistic, such as panicking when you're about to achieve freedom. The actor didn't go overboard with emotion after bad news is found out - the reaction was exactly as you'd expect from someone drugged up to the eyeballs on stuff specifically designed to inhibit emotions.

As a Stanislaw Lem fan, I had to give this version of the movie a go. Sadly, it only made me realise that I can recall very little of the remake. Apparently Lem hated this movie as he never intended the book to be "all about people's emotional issues". This movie is very similar to '2001: A Space Odyssey' in that it's extremely slow moving. There are beautiful moments throughout, both in poetry and scenes, but many will never see them for what they are just because the movie has bored them. It's very difficult to sit through, not matter how much you want to see it.
