In this first installment of "Masterpieces of Bad Right-Wing Cinema," Andy, Colin, and Richard discuss two "paranoid" films that bookend the 1990s: They Live (1988) and The Matrix (1999). Topics of discussion include the "conspiratorial" impulse, the nature of reality and the virtual, trans-humanism, and anti-Semitism and the "power elite."
