Soylent Green (1973)

Rating: ***
Cast: Charlton Heston

A sci-fi classic set in an overpopulated future where food is scarce. The government creates a cheap and abundant foodstuff called "Soylent Green" which helps to feed the masses, but what is it made of? Police officer Charlton Heston is on the case, and he doesn't like what he finds out. Enjoyable and full of wacky 1970's sensibilities.
