LIQUID SKY is one of the most commercially and artistically successful independent low budget films in the history of cinema. In the U.S., Germany and Japan it broke all the existing box office and duration records. In New York, Boston and Washington D.C. the film played non-stop for more than 3 years and grossed more than a million dollars in each city.

Newly remastered, this New York New Wave 80’s cult classic features co-writer Anne Carlisle in a dual role as Margaret, a bisexual model with a drug habit living in a penthouse with underground musician and drug dealer Adrian (Alice Sweet Alice star Paula E. Sheppard), and Jimmy, an androgynous drug addict male model who is both Margaret’s alter ego and her nemesis. An alien spacecraft lands on her roof, the occupants looking to feed on the adrenaline rush found in heroin. But they soon discover a more powerful energy is found during the moment of orgasm in the human brain. Soon Margaret’s lovers end up dead, all with a crystal shard jutting out of their heads, raising questions for her about her sexuality, her identity, and her life.

Reviews

The funniest, craziest, most perversely beautiful science fiction movie ever made.
