Last night, I was about to go to sleep but randomly zapped into a crazy movie that gripped me.

The place is Melbourne, Australia 1978. The punk phenomenon is sweeping the country and Dogs In Space, a punk group, are part of it. In a squat, in a dodgy suburb, live a ragtag collection of outcasts and don’t-wanna-be’s who survive on a diet of old TV space films, drugs and good music. And the satellite SKYLAB could crash through their roof at any moment… (imdb.com)

It has virtually no plot but something is always going on. I was fascinated by the soundtrack. You just randomly follow some characters around while they stumble through endless parties. It does not have a hardcore ending like other drug movies like “Requiem for a Dream” or “Trainspotting” and the likes, but it’s still intense. Recommended!  Favorite quote: “I have a friend who has a better synthesizer than you!”

Here is a short exerpt.
