Sunday Cinema: Soylent Green (1973)

I’ve avoided watching the 1973 Charlton Heston film Soylent Green until I’ve read the book on which it is based: Harry Harrison’s overpopulation treatise, Make Room! Make Room! So nobody tell me how this turn out. (…he said as if Phil Hartman hadn’t already ruined it for him…)

    Hope you like it. I think this is a very underrated film.

  2. I was just talking about this movie about an hour ago. It is a profound film and I think about its message all the time. I would classify it as the most depressing film ever because so much of our society is headed in the grim future depicted in this story.
