4.0 out of 5 stars Light, trippy, dreamy, bizarre = impressively odd, 23 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Ink [DVD] (DVD)
Ink is a truly bizarre film, and will split opinions as to either being a great cult find or a load of nonsense.

Ink is ultimately a film about dreams, consciousness, and how a creepy character can steal you away. It is a marvellous piece of lighting usage, deploying tactical optical tricks for a sense of odd visual individualism. The whole film feels low-budget, yet clever, almost TV styled as it commendably uses an array of effects to create odd but interesting settings.

The story is that of a massively nosed baddie (Frank) who abducts a young girl (in her dreams) whilst she is left in a coma (in reality). As the two elope, there are scenes of fighting against the dream-protecting goodies, as this plays out in her unconscious state. Think 'Insidious' (not Inception as the cover claims) and it is all about 'demons' in your dreams that can harm you and stop you waking up (coma). There is plenty more to it than that and some of it's deeper messages and content may get lost or confuse.

This unique film overall is quite surprisingly slick and creative, with experimental and likeable shots (such as furniture falling and moving back), being innovatively cut. Yes the film is odd and there is some awful dialogue, silly characters and some bizarre parts but they all add to a seemingly ambitious, surreal and indifferent voyage. The fights are quite good, it is arguably gothic and dark, trippy, captures a dream state and leaves you processing what is a inspiringly independent film experience. One for film fans, sci-fi nuts and those with an open movie outlook.
