They Live ★★★★

"I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum."
They Live is definitely One of the Coolest and Underrated Films of the Late 1980's, It tells the story of John Nada, 'Nada' of course is Spanish means 'nothing', A pure subject, deprived of all substantial content. A homeless worker in L.A. drifting around one day enters into an abandoned church and finds there a strange box full of sunglasses. And when he put one of them on walking along the L.A. streets he discovers something weird: that these glasses function like some kind of a mirror that allow you to see the real message beneath all the propaganda, publicity glitz, posters and so on.
