THX 1138 take one
11 July 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I have not seen the complete movie, just the final minute available at USC website. It pretty much looks like an early version of "Electronic Labyrinth" (1967), and perhaps an early thought on the final moments of "THX 1138" (1971). It has never been clear to me what happens to THX after he goes to the surface. Like in this little short movie, you sympathize all the time with the quest for freedom of the main character, even if you don't know exactly what he is running from. In "Labyrinth" and "THX", you are not sure if he succeeds. In "Freiheit", it is clear what happens. May be the most interesting Lucas student film, after "Electronic Labyrinth".
