Earth in 2022 is overcrowded, polluted and hungry. Homelessness and unemployment are endemic, and food is limited to a scarce supply of Soylent Green – an artificial foodstuff manufactured by the Soylent Corporation. When an executive at the Soylent Corporation is murdered, NYPD detective Robert Thorn (Charlton Heston) is sent to investigate – and slowly starts to uncover a corporate conspiracy that runs to the heart of this dystopian society

Richard Fleischer, US 1973, 15, 97mins

“As a science fiction film that relies more on viewers’ intelligence than special effects, it represents something that is sorely missed in today’s Hollywood”

“This influential vision of an overpopulated future has a horrific plausibility that’s hard to shake off”
Urban Cinefile

“Where so many science fiction visions of the era have dated, this gritty creation of a depressed (and depressing) future… looks all the more real”

“This futuristic thriller just seems to keep getting better with age”
Fantastica Daily
