Full of progressive ideas and featuring a marvellous soundtrack, Liquid Sky is one of the most outrageous and original sci-fi films ever made. Aliens who land on Earth for heroine move on to chasing greater pleasures in this film that takes a close look at the 1980s NYC underground scene and puts genre conventions through shock. The influence of the film’s atmosphere, which feeds on the avant-garde and cyberpunk aesthetics, can be seen from the musical genre of electroclash through costumes donned by icons such as Lady Gaga and Sia. Liquid Sky is a kitsch sci-fi dystopia, a stylistic search with an innovative narrative about gender roles full of prophecies on fashion and music. As Engin Ertan wrote, it is “an amalgamation of authentic ideas that is not for everyone’s taste, but will sweep some people off their feet.”
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
