What is the secret of Soylent Green?
100 Years of Dystopia Series Episode 5
Where’s the beef?
Charlton Heston got his damned dirty paws on the 1966 sci-fi novel Make Room! Make Room! and turned it into Soylent Green, his third foray into cinematic dystopia. Is it easier to swallow a future where New York City is overrun by talking monkeys or albino vampires rather than believe it could survive without a decent restaurant? How much more will rents go up when apartments come furnished with high class call girls? And are old folks like Edward G Robinson buying the farm, or providing the livestock? Find out when you sink your teeth into this Gold Level podcast.
