Liquid Sky 1982 Anne Carlisle US one-sheet

Liquid Sky (1982) - (Anne Carlisle) US one-sheet

This is a 27" x 40" US poster for the 1982 Slava Tsukerman film Liquid Sky based on a screenplay by Slava Tsukerman, Anne Carlisle and Nina V. Kerova and starring Anne Carlisle as Margaret/Jimmy. Plot summary: In New York City a lonely woman watches as a flying saucer lands on a rooftop across the street where a lesbian drug dealer and her lover are living. This is a movie arcade randomly populated with cardboard acting, industrial lighting on primary colors, a synthesized soundtrack, narcissistic androgyny, rough kinky sex, drugs and invisible space aliens mixing with humans. No sky here, despite the title; no daylight either, mostly neon and strobe. The poster is great.

Cast and crew: Slava Tsukerman, Anne Carlisle, Nina V. Kerova, Paula E. Sheppard, Susan Doukas, Otto von Wernherr, Bob Brady, Elaine C. Grove, Stanley Knapp, Jack Adalist, Lloyd Ziff, Harry Lum, Roy MacArthur, Sara Carlisle, Alan Preston, Christine Hatfull
