Soylent Green (1973)
It has been a long time since I saw "Soylent Green" and while I definitely watched it to the end the first time around I didn't remember being blown away by it. I seem to remember thinking that the best thing about the film was the ending, but now I'm not so sure.
Charlton Heston has an odd sort of acting style, but he's a dominating screen presence and he picked some very interesting projects during his career.
Soylent Green is a dystopian tale of a future where the world is suffering from enormous overpopulation and a naive concept of global warming (the weather is constantly hot). The result is that there a lack of food, particularly for the huge population and the latest food provided in rations to the people is Soylent Green.
