Liquid Sky (1982)
New Wave decadence
The time period this film was made, and the time period it takes place alone make me want to love this movie. I would GIVE anything to be twenty-one in 1982, and not eleven when the original punk/new wave movement was really in full swing. I would so love to have been able to go clubbing on Avenue A in the lower east side in 1982. I still to this day love and worship the aesthetics and music of that long ago era. Although this movie captures that era and culture so perfectly I can't really say that it was done that well. Anne Carlisle does do a good job playing both the male and female characters, and I love low-budget movies, but it's lacking something. It just doesn't seem put together very well. Maybe I was expecting it to be like a Waters or Gregg Araki movie. If you had purple hair or a mohawk and were into Nina Hagen, Lene Lovich, Klaus Nomi, or Siouxsie Sioux in the eighties you will want to see this movie.
Vegas in Space (1991)
Very cute film, with possibly the lowest budget ever. Many B movies try to make their low budget as realistic as possible, with Vegas In Space the idea was to make it look as campy as possible. Paper spaceships flying on strings over a table of perfume bottles which is supposed to represent the city of Vegas on the planet Clitoris.
The highlight is Queen Veneer (queen of Clitorian police.) This wicked little draq queen has all the other queens of Vegas shaking in fear every time she gives them the evil eye. "The only real crimes here are crimes of fashion, enough to keep me offended....and busy!"
Queen Veneer and Space Core's finest must find the thief who stole the jewels which keeps the planet's orbit stable. Who in Vegas could it be?? You also get a lesson in the history of "drag," dating back to the first dragladyke who thawed out during the "facial" age. Funny lines and wonderful dialogue make Vegas In Space one spacey, camped out funny movie!
"glamour first!, glamour last!, glamour ALWAYS!!!"
