'Ink' Movie

It is not often that I find myself wanting to promote a movie, but a few weeks ago, I watched this little known movie called 'Ink' that Netflix recommended to me with a 4.5 stars rating that I would like it (Netflix has one of the best recommendation/suggestion algorithims that I have ever seen and I have come to trust their suggestions). In this particular case, I was blown away by this Indie movie I had never heard of before. I enjoyed it so much that I ended up buying it on blu-ray within a couple of days and have watched it a couple more times since. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes dark supernatural movies.

Plot Summary
As the light fades and the city goes to sleep, two forces emerge. They are invisible except for the power they exert over us in our sleep, battling for our souls through dreams. One force delivers hope and strength through good dreams; the other infuses the subconscious with desperation through nightmares. John (Chris Kelly) and Emma (Quinn Hunchar), Father and Daughter are wrenched into this fantastical dream world battle, forced to fight for John's soul and to save Emma from an eternal nightmare. Separate in their journey, they encounter unusual characters that exist only in their subconscious. Or do they? Ink is a high-concept visual thriller that weaves seamlessly between the conscious and the subconscious. Ink has been hailed as the new "it" movie and compared to cult classics Brazil, Donnie Darko, The Matrix, Dark City and Pan's Labyrinth.

I enjoyed this one as well. For a real low budget, they did a great job with a lot of high concept ideas. I also thought the music in it was some of the best I've heard in a while. Downloaded the soundtrack.

Only issue I had with it is that the story stumbles a couple of times, but overall I agree with the Netflix rating. (That's how I discovered this one too.)

I bought the soundtrack as well. It really helped the overall feel of the movie.
