Sound of Soylents

Hello green thing, my old friend. I’ve come to munch on you again.

For a dystopian planet overwhelmed with maybe fifty billion people, the world of Soylent Green is remarkably free of children. There are nearly none. Like the people had stopped fucking a decade or so before and now it was all adults. Which would take care of that population problem soon enough. Maybe soylent had been made out of babies. It’s left unresolved, abandoned somewhere behind Charlton Heston’s acting and Edward G. Robinson’s brilliant last performance. I think he was gone before the movie opened. Soylent green was Edward G.  Mother of Mercy, is this the taste of Rico?
