Gold Told Me To
Dir. Larry Cohen (1976). Cohens remarkable, if flawed, anti-Close Encounters opens with an alien divinity terrorizing midtown Manhattan by inspiring random sniper attacks, then spins into a fantastic yarn about repressed bisexuality, plutocratic cabals, and municipal corruption. Theres also a tormentingly devout cop who arrived, like Superman, from outer spacebut doesnt know it.
