So I finally watched THX 1138, George Lucas' vision of the future from 1971. It's been in my Netflix DVD queue for a while so I bumped it up to the #1 slot for the heck of it. Mild spoilers for a 42 year old movie ahead.
What an amazing vision of a utopian future.
- Soothing monochromatic color schemes and outfits.
- Simple, easy to maintain hairstyles.
- Medicine cabinets full of sedatives.
- The Police Brutality Channel. Seriously, I have like 500 cable channels but none of them has looping footage of a cop beating someone with a baton. What's up with that?
And as OMM 0910 says, "Buy more. Buy more now. Buy. And be happy."
What?! It's supposed to be a dystopia? Never mind.
