Required Cinema for Melaninites 2
Every once in awhile, a movie comes along that sums up pretty much everything that’s going on in the world. I must admit, the first time I saw They Live, I was too young to fully comprehend what John Carpenter was trying to tell us. All I focused on were the terrific fight scenes.
As my understanding grew and my Spiritual strength became more formidable, I began to watch this film more and more. Last week marked the 20th time I watched this masterpiece. From the opening sequence where Nada tries to look for a job to the terror of realizing that the entire world is living in a carefully manufactured prison, this movie chronicles everything we’ve talked about on this blog.
Can you guess who “They” are? Who or what do you think John was referring to?
In my humble opinion, everyone should watch this movie and have group discussions.
And as always, please do not spend money on white Hollywood buying this film. Free downloads are available or you can go to the local library to rent this spectacular movie.
