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.
