Episode 4: Cult Film Corner Presents: Liquid Sky

On the fourth episode, I unveil the very first edition of CULT FILM CORNER, a dissection of and appreciation for all things strange, camp, underrated, and mostly forgotten. For the inaugural segment, I dive into 1982′s sci-fi glam romp “Liquid Sky”, a film which captures the essence of early 80s decadence, glamour, and rampant drug use within trendy New York City. Directed by a Russian immigrant named Slava Tsukerman and starring co-screenwriter Anne Carlisle in a duel role as a bisexual fashion model and androgynous Bowie-like figure, “Liquid Sky” is one weird fucking movie. It’s also, in it’s own bizarre way, something of a time capsule, and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Just remember, “I am not a turn of the century housewife and I don’t want heroin in my house.”
Now turn up that rhythm box!


The idea behind THE SYMBIOTIC PODCAST is an excuse for the host and creator, Jericho Cerrona, to monologue on various topics involving film and music culture, with the eventual hope of entertaining conversations with guests. Basically, one man awkwardly speaking into a microphone in isolation talking trends, themes, and conversational talking points within the realm of film and music while occasionally playing some tunes. So, grab some boxed mac and cheese, sip that scalding Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, and prepare yourself for the auditory experience that is THE SYMBIOTIC PODCAST. Just don’t expect true crime reveals or a string of panelists with over-empathic voices.
