I've never regretted making a movie
26 April 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a 31 minute featurette on the 2-Disc DVD of THX 1138 George Lucas Director's Cut, released in 2004. It consists of interviews with cast and crew, behind the scenes footage and clips of the film(and others, at times used to great ironic effect). They talk about shaving the actors'(and extras') heads, the nudity/sexuality, the approach to the sound design, and the various troubles connected with production for numerous reasons. The three leads(not Pleasence, as he was no longer with us when this was made, R.I.P.) all appear and have something to say; in fact, everyone does, and are interesting to listen to. This is well-edited and keeps to a pretty nice pace. We get anecdotes and such as is to be expected, and there certainly are a couple of funny instances in this. It is quite informative and it doesn't overstay its welcome. Some of the most inspirational moments of this are when we hear Spielberg and Darabont share how they feel about the picture, their reaction to it. There is nothing offensive in this, though do note that this documentary potentially spoils portions of the science fiction piece that it deals with. I recommend this to any fan of the subject matter, and anyone who wants to know more about it. 7/10
