'Logan's Run' Movie Built out of Legos

How many of you have actually heard of the movie Logan's Run?

It is is a novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson.  Published in 1967, it depicts a dystopic ageist future society in which both population and the consumption of resources are maintained in equilibrium by requiring the death of everyone reaching a particular age. The story follows the actions of Logan, a Sandman charged with enforcing the rule, as he tracks down and kills citizens who "run" from society's lethal demand — only to end up "running" himself.

In 1976, Logan's Run was turned into a movie starring Michael York, Richard Jordan, Jenny Agutter, Peter Ustinov, and Farrah Fawcett.  The movie opened with mixed reviews but has since grown into a cult classic and scifi masterpiece.

If you have not seen the movie you really should take the time to watch it.  It's a good movie hat has been rumored for a long time to be remade into a big budget film.

Keith Goldman has transformed the sexy party dystopia of Logan's Run into a massive Lego diorama; scenes from the film are interspersed in the nooks and crannies.  His creations are awesome!  The attention to detail is second to none.
