After witnessing the violent police shakedown, Nada begins to realize that something is wrong in America.The happy-go-lucky guy who believed in working hard and following the rules is starting to believe that something is amiss here.Determined to learn more, Nada re-enters the church and finds a few interesting things.More importantly, Nada discovers a box full of sunglasses that allows him to see the world as it is. While the sunglasses found by Nada appear on the surface to be worthless, they actually provide him with the greatest gift of all: The Truth.This article looks at the deeper meaning of John Carpenter’s strange but fascinating movie ‘They Live’. It is an odd combination of eye-opening messages with lackluster acting, powerful social commentary with 1950’s B-movie special effects and gripping satire with odd punchlines. until an obscure organization hacks the airwaves to broadcast subversive messages about the hidden rulers of the world. We are living in an artificially induced state of consciousness that resembles sleep. Their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness. They have made us indifferent to ourselves, to others. they just want to go back to their mindless TV viewing.Constantly making viewers oscillate between “Wow, that was genius! ”, it is difficult to properly evaluate the movie from a cinematographic point of view. Nada realizes that the street preacher and the man on television are connected through a local church.When first exposed to the truth, adapting to the new reality can indeed be difficult, and even painful.However, after a while, it becomes a seamless part of the person. During the meeting, Nada and Frank learn that humans are being recruited by the aliens in exchange for wealth and power.
Most policemen are however regular humans and just follow the orders because that’s their job …
Nada replies with another classic line “Either you put these sunglasses on or start eating that trash can”.
Then ensues one of the longest one-on-one fight scene I’ve ever seen (eight minutes of punching and kicking), a scene that is dragged out for so long that it becomes utterly absurd and even comical.
While this nameless nothing is broke and homeless, he still manages to expose the alien’s hidden rule of the world. Quite the contrary, there is a sense of impending doom in the air: Poverty is rampant, helicopters fly around the city and street preachers speak of soulless beings ruling the world. The masses’ ignorance equals a state of endless slumber.
Keep us asleep, keep us selfish, keep us sedated.” Can the above statement be applied to the Illuminati? The Average Joes who watch this pirated TV broadcast all get a massive headache – the raw truth is indeed too much for most people to bear.
