M ight be an interesting film! They Live (1988) Starring: Roddy Piper, Keith David Director: John Carpenter Rating Here is a quote from the excellent movie “They Live” which I cannot more highly recommend. Think of it as a kind of poetic documentary: …our impulses are being redirected. We are living in an artificially induced state of consciousness that resembles sleep… …the movement was begun eight months ago by a small group of scientists who discovered, quite by accident, these signals being sent through television… …the poor and the underclass are growing. Racial justice and human rights are nonexistent. They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices… …their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness. We have been lulled into a trance. They have made us indifferent, to ourselves, to others, we are focused only on our own gain. We ha… …please understand, they are safe as long as they are not discovered. That is their primary method of survival. Keep us asleep, keep us selfish, keep us sedated… …they are dismantling the sleeping middle class. More and more people are becoming poor. We are their cattle. We are being bred for slavery. The revolution… …we cannot break their signal, our transmitter is not powerful enough. The signal must be shut off at the source. the Karl Marx sci-fi action movie, April 23, 2007 Reviewer: SpiritChild “spiritchild” (Amherst, MA United States) – See all my reviewsLast night I had the pleasure of seeing this wonderful 1980’s sci-fi action film starring pro wrestler “Roddy Piper”. Piper plays an unemployed drifter, who is looking for work. Unfortunatley there aren’t many good paying jobs available, because of corporate outsourcing (a problem which is killing the middle class and increasing poverty). However, nobody seems to notice or care that their fellow Americans are suffering, because they are caught up in materialism. Piper discovers a pair of glasses that expose the truth. With the help of a few greedy individualistic elites, an evil race of aliens are slowly enslaving the human race. Pipers acting is great, and there are plenty of memorable one liners.
