Liquid Sky

A film that still may be a little ahead of the times. Aliens descend upon pre-gentrification lower Manhattan to score their fix —the chemicals the human brain produces during orgasm. Fortunately for them, they land atop the apartment of a model (Anne Carlisle, playing both male and female roles) subject to nonstop harassment and assault. Unfortunately for her visitors, extraction is fatal. The day-glo fashions, synthetic sounds, and gender fluidities maintain the feel of a guess at what’s around the corner. -LG
