Film Threat - Unnamed
Enough about the CGI tweaking, is this film really Lucas's unloved masterpiece? The film that got lost in the shadow of "American Graffitti" and "Star Wars" while, actually, being a better film?

Washington Post - Desson Thomson
Testament to the emergence of a visually masterful filmmaker, capable of ingenious, low-tech special effects.
75
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The movie's strength is not in its story but in its unsettling and weirdly effective visual and sound style. (Review of Original Release)

Boston Globe - Unnamed
For someone wanting to get noticed as a filmmaker, George Lucas couldn't have done much better than THX 1138, his 1971 feature debut that starts a limited run today in a new director's cut.

San Francisco Chronicle - Unnamed
A nice gift for science fiction fans.
