Before George Lucas went off the deep end with his Star Wars obsession, he wrote and directed THX 1138, a great movie about government censorship, sexual repression and Big Brother. The film stars Robert Duvall (complete with bald head) as THX, who lives in the future, where every person is forced to take pills that inhibit their sex drive. THX stops taking them, and from there everything goes awry. 11:59 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Friday and Saturday. River Oaks Theatre, 2009 West Gray. For information, call 713-866-8881 or visit www.landmarktheatres.com. $9.50.
Fri., Sept. 17, 11:59 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 18, 11:59 p.m., 2010
