Liquid Dreams

Star: Candice Daly, BJ Davis, Paul Bartel, Karen Dahl

[11] This low-budget American movie spends 80 minutes successfully generating sleazy atmospherics, only to throw it away in the last five, with a plot twist that's badly fumbled by all concerned. It's a futuristic tale of a girl going undercover in a dodgy media network to find her sister's killer and it works well enough, thanks to plenty of flashy visuals, a thumping electronic soundtrack and not an insignificant amount of female flesh. Mink Stole & Paul Bartel beef up a just about competent cast, and the cheap sets add to, rather than detract from, the film. Then you get the ending, which drags it down from C+ to...
