    Hello,
    With the release of THX 1138 on dvd, I was recently thinking of the films I saw on tv back when I was young. I remember seeing several films on tv with similiar story lines as THX 1138. underground civiliation, where someone is trying to escape to the surface for one reason or another. I've tried searching for the titles, but with no luck. Can anyone help?

    Logans Run can be said to be one where he escapes to the suface or exit the city.

    There is the classic movie Fortress, where an extremely competent Christopher Lambert really drives home his fine acting abilities as the wrongly imprisoned convict trying to escape to the top.

    I loved this film called A Boy and His Dog, post nuclear war about a man and his talking dog, there was a underground city involved, sort of road movie (without cars) and it starred Don Johnson! Worth checking out of you like cultish stuff.
