I suppose in retrospect, it *was* silly of me to think that the title would be ironic
28 April 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Yes, my summary is facetious. This is the shortest of the three featurettes found on the 2-Disc George Lucas Director's Cut DVD version of THX 1138, released in 2004, with a running time of just over 8 minutes. This starts with a short interview between the maker of Star Wars and Francis Ford Coppola(in which we begin to think that this will, indeed, be a genuine "making of" production, but this impression will not last; I suppose if I had to classify this, it's a sort of experimental movie, and it's good from a technical standpoint), and at the end of it, as a non sequitor(maybe he couldn't come up with an answer, I don't know), the "father"(no, not Sean Connery) of Indiana Jones says that he has this great idea "about shaving everybody's heads". The conversation instantly degenerates(I guess this was trying to say "yes, we know this is weird", and hoping to provoke interest in it, I don't know), and it cuts to, well, a ton of footage of people having all of their hair cut off, and they either react verbally or we hear their "thoughts" dubbed over it. Oh, and one of the girls, afterwards, passes a couple of Hare Krishnas on the street. There are behind the scenes shots and clips of the film(some of them contain spoilers for it). That's... it. I'm not sure what was trying to be accomplished here, other than firsting every audience member and reviewer in pointing out that the actors are bald and that that's unusual. There is a little disturbing content in this. I recommend this to anyone who this appeals to. 6/10
