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 and Emma, 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.

The front cover of my dvd case says 'A dark wondrous poetic tale' and that's exactly what it is. I'm sure some film buff will correct me and tell us all that it's based on some long forgotten silent movie by a director we've never heard of but to me this seemed completely original and fulfilled its description of wondrous. The storyline is simple, whilst the world sleeps our dreams and nightmares are fought over by good and evil potrayed here by the Storytellers and the Incubi who inhabit an alternative world. One night a random character called 'Ink' kidnaps a small girl and takes her into this alternative world as a sacrifice to the Incubi so that he can be accepted by them. The story follows the Storyteller's efforts to rescue her and what is going on in the real world. The fact that this may be low budget never becomes apparent through its intelligent use of sets and effects. The film is presented in full screen and the soundtrack is moody and significant. This film may never get a box office release and I suspect a lot of viewers wouldn't get it anyway. If you like a good story then buy it and see for yourself.

Ink is not for everyone. But it is for an awful lot of people, and you're probably one of them. Made on a budget of $250K, you'll be in wonderment over what has been achieved. Yes there's a overly long latex nose, but even this has a purpose (cue the directors commentary...).
But lets not focus on that, as many of the other costumes, set-pieces and effects are staggering considering the aforementioned budget.
Not convinced? Well, after viewing you will be, as during the film you'll be captivated by its beauty, action and developing plot. What appears to be sometimes random silliness or strange events will all make sense at some point, especially the end. Thats if you're lucky (or clever?) enough to get it the 1st time around. I have seen it a number of times (approx 8) and only just given it a rest, and im not your average serial watcher.
I feel I should include a warning though, so here goes: If expendables was your top film of 2010, do not buy this, it probably won't be your cup of tea (or can of artificially flavoured fizzy drink). Action yes, but there is a brain to be engaged in this experience.
Because for the viewer, there are lessons to be learned in Ink, and what better class can one take than a bold, poetic, creative and very well acted 107 minutes of film. Lets not call this a movie, lets stick with film.
I know I have not really explained much about the storyline, but why bother? If you crave some plot information above some healthy risk then read another review, as frankly im tired of trailers showing me way too much these days.
Oh yeah, the soundtrack compliments too, its a perfect haunting fit.
So what you waiting for, this independent film deserves your money and time.
Are you still here, the buy button is to your north..

I bought Ink on one single recommendation from a stranger on a forum here on Amazon. I've never been so pleasantly surprised by a blind movie purchase in my life!
Ink is an independent film, not with an enormous budget, but it doesn't stop it from being an incredible film with gorgeous visuals. You can see how much work went into every single second of this film. This movie stands out among everything else I've seen in a long time. Absolutely unique. The acting was fantastic, especially the acting from the young girl Quinn Hunchar, playing the character Emma. The ideas were original, the characters interesting, and the plot was engaging. And the ending... prepare for one hell of an ending. And some of you will need to keep some tissues close... A description on the back of the package compares the movie to Brazil, Donnie Darko, The Matrix, Dark City, and Pan's Labyrinth. I would definitely group it in with those films, although it is not a ripoff of any of those films at all.
Quick synopsis: there is another world, a dream world where two sides are fighting to control our dreams. Some our bringing us pleasant dreams, and others, the incubi, are bringing us nightmares. A battle ensues over the soul of a little girl named Emma, trapped in their world while in a coma... and the deciding factor falls on two men: John in the waking world, Emma's father, and Ink, a rogue warrior in the dream world, fighting to rid himself of his scars and shame.
This movie is absolutely incredible, please do yourself a favour and check it out.

A good independent film made on a low budget with contributions from hundreds of people --What's not to like?
Well in places it looks like a made for TV film with poor lighting and inconsistent dialogue. The soundtrack is basic at best and some of the acting wooden. The special effects are creaky and several scenes are disjointed;(like early Dr. Who!!)
It's not the Matrix or Inception but it has merit in terms of its ambition and plot.
For me, to get this movie made for less than $500,000 is a monumental achievement when one considers the money wasted on efforts such as Transformers and Wrath of the Titans.
Some of the film reminded me of Mirrormask and perhaps Pans Labrynth where Dark & Light are in conflict with a young girl at risk.
In my opinion it is worth viewing
