Three years after helping to create the amazing imagery in Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, special effects maestro Douglas Trumbull made an auspicious directorial debut with this environmentally themed, highly influential science fiction classic.
In the distant future, plant life on our planet is extinct. Remaining specimens are cultivated in vast greenhouse-like domes orbiting in space. Bruce Dern stars as Freeman Lowell, dedicated botanist aboard the “Valley Forge”, awaiting the call to refoliate Earth – but is forced into irreversible measures to protect his forest.

Unforgettable and haunting – Silent Running continues to make hippies of young children even today.

'old-school' sci-fi classic

This is a good example how to make a good movie with limited budget. The story and characters are the most important. The main plot is around ecology, which is even more important nowadays. The advantage of story is that decisions that main character had taken were hard and controversial. Nothing was obvious in situation that he had faced. There was no safe exit from it. He had to paid for what he has done. Fair, not idealistic look at ecology. The huge advantage of movie is scenography. Design of the ship, greenhouse-like domes is nice. Of course, not so good as in Space Odyssey 2001 for example, but still good and natural looking. That is why I like old sci-fi movies, from 70' and 80'. You can do a better locations with modern CGI, but almost never it will be looking natural. You know that is only a decoration, but it is real. You deal with it and don't pay attention to it during the watching. CGI almost always will lost quality with years after releasing. Also, movies from those years present a kind of 'low-fidelity' technology, everything is 'used', touched and degraded by time. Modern sci-fi is extremely futuristic: shining glass, flashing lights, touch screens everywhere. It is not industrial-like like it should be, I think. Acting of Bruce Dern is good for me. He was not exaggerated in being a idealistic eco-man. His character is aware of mistakes and consequences. As a bonus we have couple of lovely droids which add a bit of humor to the story.

Great film ahead of its time.

Great film with a strong environmental message that as prevalent today as it was in 72/73. Bruce Dern is always a joy to watch and the effects still stand the test of time.

I Love The VHS Editions!

I was around when VHS tapes were a thing so having this nostalgic touch to a very good movie is definitely one to display on the shelf.
