They Live (but only just)

 

They Live is a 1988 American science fiction film in which John Nada, a drifter, discovers that the ruling class are humanoid aliens with skull-like faces who manipulate people to spend money, breed and accept the status quo with subliminal messages. With a special pair of glasses he sees the dictatorship in democracy, the invisible order which sustains our apparent freedom.

Obey. Submit. Consume. Watch TV. Do not question authority. Money is your god. No independent thought. No imagination. They live. We sleep. Lucky for us all, John Nada is a man of action and so begins the fight (including perhaps the longest fistfight in cinema’s history) to save humankind.

Of course, we now know that there are no humanoid aliens and that this is not science fiction. This is a documentary of the world we live in. And the year 2025 is only ten years away - click here.
