Silent Running ★★½

Sadly couldn't get absorbed into this one and ended up zoning out more than once. Dern is solid but it isn't one of his better performances. The film shoves its message down your throat early, like only a 70s sci-fi can, and then descends into madness after the opening 30 minutes. Highlights included the set-design, the robots (despite the obviously low-budget) and I dug the score as well. I probably wouldn't watch this again, but it is ripe for a remake.
