Writer's Block: Future forward

What is the best science fiction movie of all time, and why?

Soylent Green 1973, which was quite shocking at that time. I was especially struck by Edward G. Robinson as Sol Roth, peddling away on a bike that generated enough electricity to power the bulb he was using to light the book he was reading, and his death (which was a socially acceptable form of euthanasia in that society).
