“A two-hour act of imagination.”— Time Magazine (1982)
“Displays originality, color, rage, nonchalance, sly humor and ferocious fashion sense.” — New York Times (1982)
In one of the most memorable portraits of Manhattan’s early and, ultimately, dark ’80s new wave subculture, Liquid Sky (1982) is an iconic, underground science-fiction masterpiece, which had an indelible impact on pop culture, film, music and fashion.
Available for the first time ever on Blu-ray and highlighted by an acclaimed soundtrack, Liquid Sky will be available April 24 in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, featuring an amazing 2 ½ hours of special features that make it a must for fans and collectors.
Liquid Sky stars Anne Carlisle in an outstanding dual role as promiscuous, erotic and bisexual fashion model Margaret and her gay rival and nemesis, the androgynous Jimmy. The most successful independent film of 1982, Liquid Sky is seen as heavily influencing a club scene called electroclash, which emerged in the early 2000s in New York, Berlin, Paris and London.
In Liquid Sky – a term referring to heroin in the New York City slang of the day – aliens arrive in the city in miniature flying saucers in search of heroin. However, an experiment reveals that the chemical released in the human brain during orgasm is just as powerful, even preferable to the drug they crave. Hanging around the young Margaret’s apartment, the aliens are able to achieve their desired fix. However, Margaret’s numerous casual sex partners soon each begin to die a mysterious death.
Liquid Sky is a visually stunning film that delves heavily into the era’s world of fashion, club scene and prevalent drug use in the city that never sleeps and delivers an experience that will not disappoint.
Scanned and fully restored in 4k from the 35mm original negative, the Blu-ray edition of Liquid Sky brings back to life the visual mastery of director Slava Tsukerman and the avant-garde cinematography of Yuri Neyman. The film is presented in full screen, with an aspect ratio of 1:85:1 and DTS-HD master audio mono.
