Probably some spelling errors but other that.. Some extremeley sophisticated view points on the movieMost likely written by some kind of nut, the film Powder is indeed strange. Powder is the story of an albilno completely hairless teenager who has the power to use an extraordinary amount of his brain capacity.

The idea of using Powder as a role model can work, but the audience has to view powder as being worthy. Here Powder views people, unwilling to accept the idea of a single-consciousness solely on faith, as closed-minded. This dogmatic type of view nullifies any worth powder might have had as a role model, and it dooms any chance the message of the film, which...
