They Live In Its Entirety Because It’s Freaking Awesome….That’s Why

they live

If you have not seen They Live yet, you are truly missing out on an awesome piece of American cinema. Where to begin? Yes, it is goofy. Yes the production value is very low. Yes the action is standard. The guns never empty. The fights are poorly choreographed at times. But that, my friends, is not the point.

This film was an attack on the Regan era. An attack on the rampant consumerism of the 80’s. But open your mind. Saying that it’s just an attack on the 80’s is merely shutting your eyes. Telling yourself that things have gotten better. Sorry to disapoint you, but they haven’t.

Rowdy Roddy Piper puts on some sunglasses. The world changes. Billboards now say Obey or Sleep. Or Marry and Reproduce. Magazines no longer have articles or advertisements. They are blank white pages with said phrases upon them. Money now are white pieces of paper that say This is Your God. Boy oh boy are they right.

So watch They Live. Grab some beer and score some corn. Enjoy the cheese. Enjoy the great one-liners. But also pay attention to the lines that sum up the truth. Remember the point of the film. Then go outside. Re-enter the corporate world outside your door.

You won’t need special glasses to see the truth.
