Invisible aliens in a tiny flying saucer come to Earth looking for heroin. They land on top of a New York apartment inhabited by a drug dealer and her female, androgynous, bisexual nymphomaniac lover – a fashion model. The aliens soon find human pheromones created in the brain during orgasm preferable to heroin, and the model’s casual sex partners begin to disappear mysteriously. Soviet emigre Slava Tsukerman crafted a thoroughly unique, neon distillate of New Wave/Post-Punk excess, sly humour, ferocious fashion and a truly remarkable primitive electronic music score. A personal favourite of Mikhail Gorbachev, Liquid Sky must be seen to be believed. 112mins, rated R
