Richard Fleischer
Released:
1973
Rating:
PG

Soylent Green is people! Or so viewers come to realize with horrible awareness in this cult science fiction classic released in 1973. The film tells the disturbing tale of Earth in despair and the depravity of man in 2022. Natural food like fruits, vegetables, and meat are not available or too expensive for most people. Food supplements are being produced by large corporations and rationed or sold. Chuck Connors is the baddie, and a foodstuff called Soylent Green makes everybody's Tuesday something to look forward to. A detective named Thorn (Charlton Heston, Planet of the Apes, Ben Hur, The Ten Commandments, Touch of Evil, The Omega Man) investigates the murder of the president of the Soylent Green Company. The truth he uncovers is more disturbing than the Earth in turmoil when he learns the secret ingredient of Soylent Green. Directed by Richard Fleischer (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Tora! Tora! Tora! Conan the Destroyer).
