Silent Running (1972) – 1/5

Silent Running (1972)

NEXT: “I’m Not There” (2007)

Man, not good. In the same vein of “Omega Man” and “The Andromeda Strain” this is just slow, poorly acted and suffers from the same production style.

I might have given this 2 out of 5, but the music (Joan Baez) is just painful.

There’s a lot of possible messages from this like man doesn’t care about nature, nature freaks are crazy, etc. I think mainly the message is: we need to take care of the planet or it will go away and that man cares more about money than beauty and nature. I’m not sure, but that might be it???

Haiku Summary
Ship with plants to save
Earth’s nature. Told to destroy
and come back. He’s nuts.
