Silent Running (US, 1972)

Didn’t like this when I saw it 25+ years ago and didn’t like it today. I’d assumed the ecological theme would be to do with the inadvertent destruction of nature; however, it was a warning against the utopian idea of technology giving us everything. Believeable in the ’70s; not now. Great special effects, it’s directed by Douglas Trumbell, but Dern’s one-note (concerned agony) performance cannot carry the film.
