They Live

"A fantastically subversive film, a nifty little confection pitting us vs them, the haves vs the have-nots." - Variety

They Live, John Carpenter’s 1988 paranoid freakout, deserves to be thought of as a masterpiece, an artist’s defiant last grab at substance before losing the thread. It’s a cheesy but lovable movie about a working-class hero (WWF wrestler 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper), struggling to find work in a harshly class-riven Los Angeles. He discovers, after slipping on a pair of special sunglasses, that the city’s abundant population of yuppies are aliens. It’s that simple: Yuppies are aliens.

They Live portrays these goo-faced interlopers, as viewed via the black-and-white sunglasses-cam, in three-piece suits, being pushy and uncaring, blithely telling their coworkers to 'Go for it.' And when they’re finally seen for what they are, by this nothing of a denim-clad construction worker, they panic.” - Rolling Stone
