The case can be made that you’re not really a New Yorker until you’ve seen Liquid Sky – Russian émigré director Slava Tsukerman’s giddily skewed outsider’s-eye-view of the early 80’s post-punk/New Wave Fashionista scene where even the space aliens are sex and drug junkies. It’s a heady, often hilarious and completely tripped-out portrait of a New York City at it’s own Apocalypse (but is it pre or post?) Pint-sized flying saucers, androgynous Fashion Models, a kooky German Astro-physicist and the totemic Empire State Building in a bumping-grinding-shooting-up-and-snorting sci-fi tale set to a pulsing synth gyroscope of sound as gaudy as the neon-drenched palate.
Aliens in search of a fix find roost on lesbian fashion model Margaret’s NYC rooftop and the ranks of the down-town club and drug scene begin to dwindle. Elusive actress, Anne Carlisle does double-duty as Margaret and her cry-baby junkie-boy fashion poser nemesis, Jimmy. With Paula E. Sheppard (and her Rhythm Box) as Margaret’s seemingly always angry lover and Otto von Wernherr as the scientist on the alien’s trail.
See Liquid Sky right next door to where the aliens took up residence!
