THX 1138 (1971)
The guards' masks are a reference to the police androids in George Lucas' THX 1138. Also, in the scene where Drake tries to break Bresslin, he's tapping Breslin's cell wall with his baton in exactly the same rhythm as the police android beating up a citizen in one of the most famous scenes of THX 1138.
Papillon (1973)
Hobbes collects butterflies and Breslin is an allegory for Papillon, with Rottmayer an allegory for Dega and the prison an allegory for Devil's Island.
