In an extremely overcrowded future, the government commits strange acts against the dead.
Editor's Note
21st century New York City is (still) an overpopulated mess, and the only food left is Soylent Green, a soybean and lentil concoction with an extra-special, government-mandated ingredient. As police detective Thorn (Charlton Heston) investigates a murder, he learns of a conspiracy with bizarre implications. This Edward G. Robinson's final movie, as the star died not long after filming his final scene. Based on Harry Harrison's "Make Room! Make Room!"

Expert Review Soylent Green - DVD Review

This is accompanied by happy-go-lucky piano trills, which become increasingly discordant as society falls apart. It vaguely reminds me of the "Eleanor Rigby" section of Yellow Submarine. The overpopulated streets of New York City, all 40 million residents in Soylent Green, are shot through a hazy green filter, which makes everything look as though it were taking a bath in smog....read the full review

Plot Summary
A nightmarish vision of the future set in New York City circa the year 2022. The population has swelled to 40 million and the environment is so ravaged by pollution that a synthetic food known as Soylent Green is the only kind available. When the director of the giant corporation that manufactures this food supply is murdered, the detective investigating the case gradually discovers the horrifying truth about Soylent Green's secret ingredient.
