Soylent Green

Perhaps more even than Citizen Kane, this is one film about which practically everyone knows the final plot twist, but relatively few have actually seen. As those who have generally concur, it’s a nice little sci-fi story shabbily filmed. Heston Services, Chuck ‘Tin Can Alley’ Connors and Edward G Robinson fall victim to food shortages, unchecked overcrowding and pollution, leading slowly up to the famous sub-Planet of the Apes denouement which we won’t spoil here, just in case you’ve never seen a single episode of The Simpsons.
