THX 1138 is decent enough for a feature-length debut that draws in some considerable talent (aside from Duvall, distinguished character actor Donald Pleasence shows up as a fellow citizen) and has an interesting enough visual aesthetic with its metal-faced police officers and bright white prisons, but it's let down a bit by the fact that it's not an especially inventive film in terms of plot or characterisation.

The color or lack there of, the actors it was all great, and wow Robert Duvall was so young in this (yes I know it was 40 years ago) I mainly know Duvall from a lot of his more modern films.
