On the subject of Best SF film . Has any one seen a film called
UBX 11.. i can't remember the whole title . It is a futureistic
society type film (1984 ish) this guy is getting all sorts from
them in charge , funny seens with his wife/lover? . Oh yes , the
police are robots , everyone is bald , i think they have to 
take some drug ? now it's starting to sound like brave new world .
It has a real nail bitting ending .. but of course i wouldn't tell 
about that . I saw it in england  it was in colour so must be
fairly new ?? .
	Also what about some of the REAL clasics like METROPOLIS .
A must for anyone who wants to be a real s-f fan , black&white  
very old and , of course ,  silent . 

Also who wrote THE SHEEP LOOK UP , ( an english guy ?) , the
Best SF Book of all time .

This sounds an awful lot like THX 1138, George Lucas's first(?) film.
a very strange movie...

John Brunner.  The sequel to this is STAND ON ZANZIBAR, I believe.

*** REPLACE THIS LINE WITH YOUR MESSAGE ***
I believe you are refferring to THX-1138, not UBX-11 something.  People on
here mention it once in awhile; it is worthy of note mainly because it was
George Lucas' first film.  It was kind of 1984ish with people running around
with bald heads and lots of bright white sets.  Doesn't seem quite the
"Best SF" material, though.

 The title is THX 1138.  The first film by everyone's pal
George Lucas.  The  phrase THX 1138 shows up as Harrison Ford's
license plate in American Graffiti and as a serial number in Star Wars
Also, THX is the name of Lucasfilm's new sound system.  Neat, hunh?

Yup, that's what it is all right.  40 net responses identifying a film
can't be wrong!!!  Is there some way to be sure this is the last
response on this question?
