I like it. The cast was cool and the story was excellent. I liked the effects.

We are all inextricably bound to one another. This goes beyond the mere similarities of the mortal coil. We are one with each other and the world. The universe and everything in it is composed of energy, "never ending, ever transforming." There is a light inside you...just as there is in everyone and everything. What stops us from seeing this "oneness" with the world? What stops us from receiving this energy and giving it as well? Fear. Doubt. Shame. We are stopped at the source and bound to our inhibitions...our fear of being vulnerable and held wide open for all to see. Powder opens you and lets you into his world. It may be scary, but the truth is often scary. A highly enlightened being (to be likened to Buddha or Christ if you please), he has no social experience save what he has learned in books. We watch as he navigates the waters of humanity (or inhumanity) in the shell of an albino boy shunned by most, feared by many, and very alone. This movie will leave you in awe. It is as perfect for family viewing as it is for viewing alone or with a friend. This is a movie that has the potential to change you...for the better. Perhaps one day we will witness Powder. I, for one, truly hope so
