(I consider myself a pretty serious movie fan. But the simple fact of the matter is that I miss stuff. Famous and interesting stuff. But not for long! Welcome to the column where I continue my film education before your very eyes. I will seek out and watch all of the movies I know I should have seen by now. I will first "review" the movie before I've watched it, based entirely on its reputation. Then I will give the movie a fair chance and actually watch it. You will laugh at me, you may condemn me, but you will never say I didn't try!)

The Film:

Soylent Green (1973), Dir. Richard Fleischer


Charlton Heston, Leigh Taylor-Young and Edward G. Robinson.

Why I Haven't Seen It Until Now:

Because I know the ending. You know the ending. Everyone knows the ending. Soylent Green is people, right? What's the point? Did I just save myself two hours?
