They Live Full Movie In Hindi 720p
Nada, a down-on-his-luck construction worker, discovers a pair of special sunglasses. Wearing them, he is able to see the world as it really is: people being bombarded by media and government with messages like "Stay Asleep", "No Imagination", "Submit to Authority". Even scarier is that he is able to see that some usually normal-looking people are in fact ugly aliens in charge of the massive campaign to keep humans subdued.
John Carpenter's slow and deliberate immersion of the daunting and worrying fable of the corrupt, deceiving and indifferent economic, social and political society, that has wrapped itself around its people and who in turn have blindly accepted their fate. Multicultural in more forms than anticipated, are the leading and upwardly mobile alien race who have gelled themselves into the Human psyche and exploited it to its full potential. This is the story of an everyman, a no one, a Nada who stumbles upon their secret, via an underground movement, whose mission is to sabotage their plans and awaken the world to its sinister plans. With the help of a pair of sunglasses, that shows the world as it really is, not in color, but a black and white parallel world that the sub-conscious has chosen to ignore. With subliminal messages as "OBEY", "CONFORM", "MARRY AND REPRODUCE", "CONSUME", "WATCH TELEVISION" and "SLEEP". It is through this thought control that the aliens have this world tied up and neatly packaged for its own manipulative uses, to further themselves at the expense of the meek, mild and the lowly sufferers of a job less and hungry world. This is the battle of self-awareness and one mans struggle with a reality check that has these alien beings staging war against the up-rising and rebellious armies from the gutters and streets. They Live You Sleep; where will your consciousness take you when the sleep is washed from your eyes. Welcome to the real world.
This film takes on Reagan Era ethics, as American Psycho would several years later, with the darkest humor and satire. If your neighbor or those phonies you encounter around town seem not to care what happens to other people, if they seem somehow disconnected from the reality the rest of us know, it's not because they are Republicans, it's because they are aliens.
They Live handily satirizes paranoia films of the 50s, film fight scenes (the bit where Roddy Piper and a foe punch and stomp at each other for what seems like 12 minutes of screen time is side-splitting once you realize they are pulling our leg -- this scene, like so many in this film, means more on re-viewing), and most of all the politics and ethics of the 80s. (I guess the makers showed restraint in not naming the chief alien "Meese".)
The scene in which Piper realizes that select people on the street are aliens, and that our cluttered postmodern visual environment of tacky signs and billboards is not close to what it appears is genuinely hackles-raising, a stroke of genius. See it. Ten Stars.
They Live (1988)
** 1/2 (out of 4)
John Carpenter's political satire has a drifter (Roddy Piper) discovering a pair of sunglasses that allow humans to see aliens walking around on Earth. The sunglasses also allows people to see hidden meanings in items that we use everyday so the drifter along with a friend (Keith David) decide to join an underground movement to expose them.
Here's another Carpenter picture that didn't too all that well when released but overtime it became another cult film that is enjoyed by countless people across the country. Carpenter was certainly in a bad mood in regards to his political feelings because this movie pretty much strikes out about everything popular in the 1980s. The political satire in the film really isn't all that bad and thankfully it's never taken too serious but, then again, nothing here is taken overly serious, which allows the viewer to have some fun with the material.
I think Carpenter has a very good plot to work with, although I'd argue that the end results aren't nearly as great as I would have hoped for. The idea that aliens have taken over the world without humans knowing is something that you could do a lot of things with and there are many interesting ideas floating around. One of the best sequences in the book shows that even humans are willing to sell out their own as long as they're rewarded with some money. This message or slap in the face is just as relevant today as it was when the film was first released. Carpenter is clearly having fun with the idea of calling out various types of people and this includes a funny nod towards the end of the picture at Siskel and Ebert.
Again, the politics never get to the point where the film is preaching to you and this is a major plus because no one likes to be beaten over the head with a political message. Another thing that works extremely well are the special effects of the aliens whenever someone is wearing glasses. The fleshless look is actually extremely good and is a nice throwback to the 1950s sci-fi films. There's also a terrific music score by Carpenter and Alan Howarth as well as the typical great cinematography that you'd expect from the director. Then, there are the two lead actors who are both very fun in the roles, although some of Roddy's one-liners are pretty bad.
THEY LIVE isn't one of my favorite pictures from the director but it's certainly got a clever little idea and isn't afraid to call a few things out. The movie is certainly well-made but I think it falls just short of actually being good. I don't mind, perhaps had it taken itself a tad bit more serious then it would have accomplished more. As it stands, it's a decent camp film.
Typical of some of the absurd moments in this film is a long drawn-out fist fight between the hero and Frank, who almost kill each other because Frank is too proud to try on the magic dark glasses. It is completely stupid. [5 Nov 1988]
