On a rather grim note, one thing it made me wonder: Could people in such circumstances be socialized to ACCEPT mass cannibalism? Even in the movie, it was a closely-gaurded secret, but as we all know many humans have resorted to it or even relished it over the course of time.

This movie was made in 1973 and took place in 2022. It makes the future look bleak. In 73 it seemed like a futuristic fable, water rations, meat unobtainable, fruit available if stolen, etc. That hasn't happened yet BUT there's 16 years left in that prediction. Parts of what was pointed out ARE happening, the rise in Earth temperatures for one. The synopsis from that movie can be found here.
I saw this movie 30 years ago and found it to be entertaining. I saw it this past weekend and now I find it quite disturbing. You kinda have to be in your 40, at least, to remember this movie but my question is, was this movie a prediction of things to come? I'm beginning to think so.
