Wow, not a good film. It's basically A Brave New World, with a slight twist, you are killed at the age of 30 and you live in a dome.

Another good sci-fi classic, from the 70's. Doesn't hold up very well today, but there's still some fun.

I remember having a great time watching this weird sci-fi flick. Funny and very 70s esque. Looking forward to the remake.

This movie was great to me as a child (and somewhat scary) and great to me as an adult. It's very 70's but the storyline can still very much be related to today. What would you do if you were in a society that won't let you live past 30 years of age? The system does make sense in a logical way and for most of your life it is utter paradise. No work, no stress. Day in and day out of doing whatever you please. No hunger no over population. For everyone that dies, a new baby is born. But just when you hit the age of 30, the peak of your life, you are required to "renew" yourself, by committing a ritualistic suicide. Would you accept your fate or would you become a runner?
A very thought provoking movie to say the least. If you like post apocalyptic, Utopian Societies gone wrong based …
