Man, it’s depressing to think about but, for every year that has passed since I first saw this as a Movie of the Week back in the 1970’s, Soylent Green (1973) seems less and less like speculative science fiction and more like a self-fulfilling prophecy. The North Pole is a lake, GMO’s are propagating, and the decimation of the pollinating bee is the first link in a possible catastrophic collapse of the food chain. We’ve already achieved Idiocracy status, people. Next stop, Cheese and Crackers — only their ain’t gonna be any cheese. Still worth a look whether you know the ultimate twist or not due to the fantastic supporting efforts of Edward G. Robinson; from his crotchety cussing to his magnificent, Kevorkian send-off. Watch and be prepared to be really, really depressed after.

Soylent Green (1973) Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) / P: Walter Seltzer. Russell Thacher / D: Richard Fleischer / W: Stanley R. Greenberg, Harry Harrison (novel) / C: Richard H. Kline / E: Samuel E. Beetley / M: Fred Myrow / S: Charlton Heston, Edward G. Robinson, Leigh Taylor-Young, Chuck Connors, Joseph Cotten, Brock Peters, Paula Kelly

This, alas, will be my last post for the For the Love of Film: The Film Preservation Blogathon hosted by Ferdy on Films, This Island Rod, and Wonders in the Dark. This year’s theme was science-fiction, and we’ll be leaning hard toward the “mad science” portion of the genre, here’s another exception. Hope you enjoy, and please click on the link above and donate to help restore the silent film, Cupid in Quarantine. The goal is to raise $10,000. Give what you can, won’t you? Thank you!

Bit of a CinemaScope hangover, here. But I just love the moxie of The Island theater not backing down from the big boys with their new “Wide-Vision Screen”!
