This 3 part video attempts to define the movie John Carpenters "They Live"
This is one of my favorite movies as it has so much to teach us about the world that is all around us. The movie is based on the main character Roddy
Roddy Piper (x pro wrestler). The world he is living in very much resembles our own, high unemployment, hard times, and a heavy police state, with a
clear class system. After a police raid he finds a box of sunglasses and when he puts them on, reality changes. He sees things as they really are
billboards that apparently showed a beautiful woman advertising a product turns into a black and white billboard with "obey, or consume, or
reproduce" printed. Dollar bills change into "This is your God", then the most horrific part is he sees some people as aliens.
I do like this interpretation by Celtic Rebel of this movie.
