"They Live" (1988)

The film takes place in the near future. The world is experiencing a sort of global depression after what seems to have been a societal meltdown. Morale is low, conditions are the poorest. In looking for work Roddy Piper's character, Nada, finds himself in the middle of an uprising; a conspiracy to overthrow the powers that be. Powers that no one would expect to be. Nada finds a box full of special sunglasses that strip away the strategically placed layers and let him see what is truly happening. The media, Politics, everything is controlled by these malevolent inhabitants. The terrifying nature of this movie is enough to chill your bones as you watch Nada's world crumble before his, and your own, eyes. It is a movie that can be watched again and again for it's depth is that of worldly proportions. Watch "They Live".

This is the debut single called "Homecoming" from The Teenagers. The video is directed by Kinga Burza. This three piece high school trip is all about sex, parties, cigarettes, and sunglasses, which is pretty regular for a trio called The Teenagers. Their style fuses pop, rock, and trance into joyful hodgepodge that passes love notes to your ears in between classes. I saw this video on one of my friend's posts and i enjoyed every bit of it. The direction is subtle and classy for a song that narrates a fuck-at-first-sight from dual perspectives.
