Did a little late-night YouTubing and I came across someone who uploaded They Live (yes, the ENTIRE movie), a pretty intense sci-fi/black humor movie directed by John Carpenter in 1988.

Basically the plot deals satirically with the perceived notion of a declining economy, within a culture of greed and conspicuous consumption commonly associated with the 1980s. It posits a world in which some of the monied elite (i.e., the "yuppies") are actually aliens oppressing the poverty-stricken lower classes through subliminal media advertising.

I'm not going to spoil the movie and post the entire summary, so your best (and highly recommended) choice is to just watch the entire thing.

And if it makes it any cooler, this movie was basically Shepard Fairey's inspiration behind his entire OBEY Propaganda Movement. Voila bitches.

The movie starts off a little slow, so here's a crazy ass fight scene to get you started:
