A bizarre, often hilarious melee of weird drugs, weird sex and off-the-wall camp SF.

Bad, but sometimes fascinating. It's genuinely strange and, at least, truly independent.

Since its unmemorable release in 1982, the Warhol-esque Liquid Sky has developed a rather significant cult following.

[This] film, with a heroine who is sometimes a hero and who is apt to show up in a red corset with matching red-and-blond skunk hairdo, can hardly be for everyone. But the right audiences are bound to appreciate the originality displayed here.

Capturing the manner and humor of a comic strip about punk culture, Liquid Sky is the brain product of Slava Tsukerman, a Soviet emigre in NY; like the aliens in his cult flick, he explores the exotic pleasures denied him in his native country.

Anne Carlisle, who stars as both the model and her creepy male counterpart, projects a disturbing and original aura of opaque, ingrained despair.

Liquid Sky is an odd, yet generally pleasing mixture of punk rock, science fiction, and black humor.

Outrageous fun, this film is New Wave chic, satire, self-parody, science fiction, and certainly one of the more accessible independent features ever made.

Liquid Sky is one of the forerunners of the quirky American independent movement that exchanged substance for style, and, love it or hate it, is a true original.

Knowingly kitsch, Liquid Sky uses the most basic effects and featuring music and fashion that were cutting edge at the time, it now looks fashionably retro.
