Visit the future where love is the ultimate crime.
100 Years of Dystopia Series Episode 6
The Empire Strikes Baldies
A long time before Luke Skywalker blew up the Death Star in a faraway galaxy, USC film school grad George Lucas dramatized another kind of future rebellion in his sci-fi debut THX 1138. Does Robert Duvall feel it’s worth stopping his emotion-suppressing medications, and enduring billy club beatings, just so he can perform sexcrimes in a sterile dystopia? And is the prospect of bunking with Donald Pleasance reason enough to steal a pimped out go-kart and drag race to freedom? The audience is listening to this Gold Level show when they donate to Now Playing.
