No Blade of Grass

1970

Cornel Wilde
Director

"By the beginning of the 70s man had brough the destruction of his environment close to the point of no return. Of course there was a great deal of talk about saving the earth but in reality very little was done".

Clearly nothing changes.

Eco-apocalypse action film is surprisingly violent with some good action set pieces, notably the biker attack. While the message is as subtle as tofu, this still resonates.

I recall seeing this as part of a Greenpeace sponsored event and was the only person in the audience.
