Soylent Green

Soylent Green

An overpopulated 2022, where resources are so scarce food riots break out. Soylent Green is the latest product to feed the starving masses, but may not be what it seems. A routine investigation into the murder of a Soylent executive drags detective Thorn (Charlton Heston) and his partner Sol Roth (Edward G. Robinson, who would never live to see the completed film) into the darkest of secrets. Heston’s crying out of the final line is one of sci-fi’s iconic moments.
