I stumbled across this movie by chance. Or was it by chance? Never mind. I will be trying to explain the plot as a whole, because 1) you will probably not get any wiser and 2) it will sound retarded as fuck, all I can say is this: a monster named Ink kidnaps a girl, the father tries to save the girl and during this time there's a war between those who bring you good dreams and those who give you bad dreams. Sounds cheesy, huh? Actually, it's quite a heartwarming story (I usually hate that stuff) that looks surprisingly good for a indie-flick. The acting might not be top-notch all the time, but it's good enough so that you won't get annoyed about it.
But the acting is really secondary to the direction here. I believe that the term "auteur" is a bit overused, to the point of losing its meaning, but I can't find a better word to describe it. Winans has really put in an effort in its details. This is especially noticeable in scene where one character orchestrate a series of events. It's beautiful.
Sure, the ending might be a bit predictable, but this is really more about the travel to get there. Damn, that sounded cheesy.
