They Live (1988)

 

By Melissa Antoinette Garza

 

They Live has grown from a little known gem to a cult classic with mainstream acceptance over the years.  At the very least, it is a great movie with one of the best fight scenes ever and even better action lines.  At most, it’s a prophetic and very relevant analysis of our government and the corporations that sell the merchandise we consume.

I’ll provide a summary for this film though I hardly believe one is necessary.  Nada (The Hot Rod Rowdy Piper) is an unemployed drifter looking for work.  He goes to an agency that can’t help him.  Finally, he finds a small job at a construction site.  Piper is perfect in this role and is at his best!

Nearby a church, there’s a large group of people living outside in tents.  Nada joins them.  One of the drifters (Buck Walters) gets angry at the TV when a man interrupts the satellite and warns of a dangerous elite who are attempting to take over the world and keep the people asleep.  Think Illuminati and the New World Order.
