Soylent Green (1973)

In the year 2022, the global population has grown to unsustainable levels – luckily, the Soylent Corporation has stepped in to feed all those hungry mouths with the carefully-rationed Soylent Green. But Charlton Heston's policeman makes the mistake of investigating the truth behind the "plankton-based wafer," and discovers some unpalatable truths, leading to a twist ending that almost matches the conclusion of his previous dystopian sci-fi effort, Planet of the Apes.
