Ink (2009)

Ink is the last inspirational sci fi gem I trully enjoyed.
The plot was about the confrontation of two forces over humanity's sleep.
There are the good guys. They deliver hope and strength through good dreams.
And there is the opposite side, the Incubus sharing fears through nightmares.
John is a successful businessman who lost his wife at a tragedy.
He will lose his daughter's care because he is interested only for his job.
When Emma (his daughter) is being kidnapped by a monstrous man through her sleep, John will fight for her saving and his soul.
Separate in their journey, they encounter unusual characters that exist only in their subconscious. Or do they? 
The political slam on capitalism and the analogy of drug addiction to that of power and greed are clearly contrast to true values of family and self worth.
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.
