SOYLENT GREEN (1973) — Its the year 2022...People are still the same. Theyll do anything to get what they need and they need Soylent Green. Soylent Green is a landmark in science-fiction, an evolutionary tale that is a mirror to a tomorrow rife with ecological disaster. Working well again in the futuristic genre following Planet of the Apes and the Omega Man, action titan Charlton Heston portrays Thorn, a detective prowling the dank streets of a polluted over populated Big Apple gone rotten in 2022. Hes trailing a murderer— and the trail leads to a stunning discovery. Vividly realized, Soylent Greens world gains its power not just from its special effects but from its heart—a human dimension magnified by the performance of legendary Edward G. Robinson in his moving screen farewell. (Rated PG. 1h 37 min.)
