An interesting little piece
30 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting little movie. The concept is Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas, than two young up n' comers out to take on the film system, with their new company and ways of making films. George has a vision for his new movie, "THX 1138" and to get you have to one thing... make the actors look like skinheads! We see shots of the actors meeting the film people, in places like the park or a baseball game and we hear their recorded thoughts as their hair is trimmed away. The part that is really weird is when one of the actresses, now completely shaved walks past a group of Hare Krisnas on the street! Interesting to watch, it is featured as a bonus on the Director's cut DVD of THX, so you have to watch it.
