THX 1138 (1971)

I honestly didn't have high expectations for a futuristic film from George Lucas as I'm not a Star Wars fan (though I do have a respect for Lucas as a filmmaker and special effects auteur, his writing is subpar). THX 1138 surprised me.

Humans are dispensable, drugged and heavily monitored in an underground city in the distant future. The most shocking aspect of the society is how calm everything is even when there are nuclear disasters, complete with high casualties, contained though they may be. The acting is superb as the drugged characters slowly awake.
