George Lucas, the young film rebel

I got put on to this documentary from one of my favorite blog sites, Here you will see a young, rebellious George Lucas talking about his earlier filmmaking efforts and expression his scorn for Hollywood. This documentary features Lucas' student film "THX 1138," which has influenced my own work a great deal. The interviewer, Gene Youngblood, is a highly regarded film scholar who has theorized about video as art. It gets interesting towards the end when they start discussing the future of cinema as an art form.
