Liquid Sky

Synopsis: 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 the human pheromones created in the brain during orgasm preferable to heroin, and the model's casual sex partners begin to disappear. This increasingly bizarre scenario is observed by a lonely woman in the building across the street, a German scientist who is following the aliens, and an equally androgynous, drug-addicted male model. (Both models are played by Anne Carlisle, in a dual role.) Darkly funny and thoroughly weird.

- Hey, I need some stuff.

- You got any money, baby?

- No, but I'll get some tomorrow.

- Yeah, but I don't wanna think

about it tomorrow.

I'm performing tonight, remember?

- Hey listen--

- no.

- Let's go to your place.

- Right now with you?

- Sure.

- Okay, let's go.

- Do you know where she

keeps the stuff?

- Don't even ask me about that.

- I don't usually f*ck girls.

- That's okay, I prefer women to men,

anyway.

- Do you think we can find it?

- Find what?

- We could take just a little.

She wouldn't know.

- Adrian would know.

Besides, I don't know where it is.

- Yes you do.

- F*ck you.

Cut it out.

That's enough, I think

you should leave.

If you wanna go to the club and

ask Adrian, go ask her.

- Me.

Me and my.

Me and my rhythm box.

Me and my rhythm box.

Me and my rhythm box.

Are you jealous, folks?

Are you jealous, folks?

Are you jealous, folks?

- Are you gonna take a cab?

- F*ck yourself.

- Margaret, Margaret?

We have to get back to the club.

Adrian will be finished singing.

We still have to make up for

the fashion show.

Open the door.

I wanna give you back your dress.

- Okay-

- Margaret?

- Wait for me, I'll go back to

the club with you.

- My rhythm box is sweet,

never forgets a beat.

It never eats, it never shits.

It never sleeps.

It only beats.

It's all cool, it does its rule.

It's always high.

So am I.

Do you wanna know why?

It,

it is,

preprogrammed.

So what?

So what?

So what?

So what?

So what?

So what?

Who's not?

I'll think you and I remember.

- So it's all set, Margaret, we'll

come over tomorrow night.

- You're not supposed to be in here.

- Your roof is great.

And you are even better.

Jimmy, looking forward to seeing

you tomorrow night.

- I don't know.

- Oh come on, we'll have a great time

and get some terrific shots.

There's a chance to get them

published in midnight magazine.

- What kind of

drugs will you have?

- Anything you want.

- All right.

- Me and my,

me and my rhythm box.

Me and my rhythm box.

Me and my rhythm box.

Me and my rhythm box.

- Liquid sky, the

key to heaven,

the milk of paradise.

That's what they used to call it.

- Paul, I don't want you

to do it anymore.

It's dangerous.

- So, see you tomorrow on

Margaret's roof.

And don't stay out all night.

I want you looking fresh

for the shoot.

What, do you wanna look bad?

- I said yes.

- People have been using

opiates for centuries.

Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, India,

China,

everybody used it.

Nobody thought it was

destructive or dangerous.

They didn't think it was

immoral to feel euphoric.

- Are you going to come to my

roof tomorrow night?

- I'll decide that tomorrow night.

- All right, listen to me everybody.

Listen up.

They're getting restless, let's

start the show.

- How about in this country at the

turn of the century?

You could buy a heroin

derivative in any drugstore

to cure your ills.

Housewives loved it.

They used it for everything,

like aspirin.

Everybody wants euphoria.

What's wrong with that?

- I am not a housewife at the

turn of the century

and I do not want heroin in my house.

- It's not just for pleasure.

I use it to open my

blocked creativity.

Cocteau wrote great literature

while high on opium.

- Cocteau was cocteau before

he ever did drugs.

- And what's that supposed to mean?

- That it's not gonna help you.

- You bitch.

You always put me down don't you,

throwing your success in my face.

Well uh, you wanna help me,

hold this for me.

Hold this.

- Say please.

- Please.

- Paul, I did it because I love you.

- You still want some stuff?
