The quiet revolutionary, THX, as played by Robert Duvall, is determined to escape the nightmare world he exists in, in this classic scene from the 25th century set fantasy nightmare THX 1138-the proper debut of then "new wave" director George Lucas, presenting us with a similar but anti precursor in many ways to certain aspects of STAR WARS.
