THEY LIVE (Dir. John Carpenter, 1988, US) - False Needs
They Live, released in 1988, marked a high point in the work of John Carpenter. This science fiction allegory is the closest Carpenter came to making a political film. The shots are taken from a key sequence in which the main protagonist slips on some sunglasses and finally comes face to face with an Orwellian reality based on social control.
