Ink: an independent movie I should have heard about before now


Movie poster for Ink

Ink. At first glance it's easy to assume the movie is about the vast world of tattoos. But, no.

From IMDB: 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.

No release dates yet, but unfortunately it will probably receive a small release. Check the trailer out below, and notice Hollywood always gives too much away, the Indies always leaves you wanting more.
