Before Star Wars, before Indiana JonesÑeven before American GrafittiÑthere was THX 1138 (1971), the first film directed by George Lucas. Based on a student short made by Lucas and Walter Murch, THX 1138 is a 1984/Brave New World-type of story of a dehumanized worker (Robert Duvall) who breaks free from the shackles of his totalitarian society. The flipside of Star Wars' carefree adventure, THX 1138 was a downbeat experience little seen at the time, but its reputation has grown due to its famous creator and its copious merits: innovative editing and graphic design, fascinating sound montage (by Murch), and a mesmerizing look-and-feel. FSM's premiere release of the THX 1138 soundtrack is a fascinating musical journey of Schifrin's score and source music, ranging from avant garde soundscapes to cheeky plays on his Latin jazz of the '60s. The CD includes passages not heard in the finished film and is entirely in stereo, remixed from the original Warner Bros. elements. Liner notes by Jeff Bond and Lukas Kendall include a history of the film's production and Schifrin's comments.
