New 4K Restoration

A bizarre and neon-colored sci-fi cult movie, Liquid Sky offers a singular vision of subculture-on-screen with a simultaneous celebration and critique of its New Wave punk artist characters. Anne Carlisle stars in two roles—both drug-addicted fashion models—one a gay man and the other a bisexual woman, upon whose penthouse roof invisible, heroin-seeking aliens have landed. The film puts the socially insubordinate value system of the early ’80s New York underground art scene on full display as it dizzyingly oscillates between camp irony, B-movie homage, and psychosexual nightmare. Contains mature content, including nudity, drug references, and strong language.
