Product Description

Michael (Peter Cilella) is committed to getting his best friend Chris (Vinny Curran) to sober up and get his life back on track. With the best of intentions, Michael implements a plan to convince Chris to go to rehab before his drug addiction leads to an early death. But what begins as an attempt to save his friend's life quickly takes an unexpected turn as the two friends confront personal demons, the consequences of past actions, and forces beyond their control.

By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER on April 13 2014
Format: Blu-ray
A deeply oddball, and pretty entertaining low budget mash-up of character study, humor, and metaphysical horror. It’s not like anything you’ve seen before, but it achieves that effect by taking a LOT of elements you’ve seen before, and having fun combining them in novel ways.

A young guy - Michael - who seems to have his life pretty together goes out to try and save his depressed, meth-head, gun loving friend – Chris – who is living alone in the middle of the woods. The unanswered question of who took the video of this Chris acting so crazy sets the tone for this film full of unexplained weirdness that creates a generally tense and creepy atmosphere despite any clear resolution to many of the questions (that's only one of several meanings the pun-laden title seems to have).

Much of the film is the relationship between these two men, and how Chris reacts to being forced to go cold turkey after Michael handcuffs him to a wall pipe. Both the acting and dialogue wavers between fun, honest, touching and a touch amateurish. Chris has one of the easier, least believable sudden withdrawals from serious addition I can remember seeing on film. But this film doesn’t seem too worried about being real. It seems far more interested in being entertaining and leaving you wondering just what things mean; that old, creepy photo, the escapee from a local loony bin who knocks on the window at night, the fact that they are on Indian lands with a bad history. Do these things mean anything? Or do we just assume they do from a lifetime of horror and suspense films? The film-makers aren’t always saying, they want us to wonder for ourselves… and to smile while we shiver just a bit. I’ll be curious to watch this again. It seems like a repeat viewing will either reveal its shallowness or uncover hidden depths…

HASH(0xa3123a50) out of 5 stars They came searching for monsters... Feb. 10 2014
By Straw Dog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Resolution is a film that is best watched without expectation. It's a genre bending film and that will make some viewers dislike it. It bills itself as horror/thriller but really it's more of a comedy/buddy film with a little mystery/drama thrown into the mix.

The plot is simple:
Michael lives in the city and has lost contact with his friend Chris. One day Michael receives a video of Chris, which shows him sitting out in the country side and doing crystal meth all day... and shooting guns. Michael assumes that Chris sent the video and it is a cry for help. Michael goes to his friend Chris and handcuffs him to the wall, in hopes that he will get clean for good. Michael takes walks each day and finds himself gradually involved in a local mystery that may prove more than he and Chris can handle.

I really enjoyed Resolution because everything comes off as very genuine. You can tell that the cast had fun making it and everyone from the directors to the actors really sell it. I actually got lost in these characters and the mystery that they are involved in and never once was bored or was my mind wandering. I loved how casual and disarming the film was when it's just Michael and Chris together, and I like the contrast between those and some of the more eerie scenes.

For those that enjoy stuff in the realm of Twin Peaks, this is for you. I'm not saying that as a comparison, but more as an indication of the flavour and atmosphere of the film.

HASH(0xa33aa5b8) out of 5 stars Great Film. Not for everyone. Nov. 12 2013
By Albertstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
One of the best movies from 2012, hands down. Original, funny and genuinely creepy. Would be great side-by-side with Kill List and the Blair Witch Project.

HASH(0xa325b474) out of 5 stars Indie horror unlike anything you've seen before! Sept. 17 2013
By Heather R Seebach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Sick of cheap knock-offs and lame by-the-numbers Hollywood horror? Resolution delivers something entirely new and surprising. It is original, both tense AND funny, and simply not to be missed! It is thought provoking and not for the lazy, though - trust me, you will want to watch it again immediately. This is the best film of 2012/2013 that you haven't heard of! But soon everyone will be buzzing about directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson as they are the real deal and you will want to keep an eye on them! Seriously, see this movie!!!

HASH(0xa325b090) out of 5 stars In the deepest, real, and visceral sense, Resolution is a horror movie. Sept. 24 2013
By Jeffrey P Hunt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
In the deepest, real, and visceral sense, Resolution is a horror movie. Its primary tool is not only the psychological mind game Justin Benson puts his characters through (i.e. misguided friendship, drug addiction, violence, and the mystery of whose watching) but what he also forces the audience to realize as they watch them spiral out of control. Resolution not only breaks the third wall, it decimates it. We become the monster just by sitting there and watching. If that's not enough to wrap your head around then you have to see it to really get to really get mind screwed. ~ the Creepercast
