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.

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…

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.

Ho hum movie w/ preview being better than film itself. June 26 2014
By Dodger712 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I can't say I liked this film or saw much of a point. The preview looked great and made it seem like a "Cabin In The Woods" meets "Close Encounters" (or "Fire In The Sky"). Was movie Creepy? Yes. But it was irritating too. Plot: Someone sends a guy video of his loser drug addict friend going "mental" in the woods and he goes to "rescue" him by trying to take him to rehab. No go. Addict refuses. So friend handcuffs addict to a wall in a shoddy cabin addict is living in. Native Americans arrive claiming house is their property. More loser druggies that addict and friend know from High School come to collect on drug debt and threaten addict and buddy. Dog friend of addict drops by to "work" on book she and addict are "writing" about squirrels (Delusion by addict). Weird photos, old books, film loops, and recordings appear. I didn't care. Strange ending that was to be profound or bizarre or funny(?). I felt relief that something came along and movie ended, putting the two leads out of MY misery! TRUELY a total waste of my time, the efforts of talented actors, and of film.

Heavily flawed, but worth a viewing or two Sept. 28 2014
By DanD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Michael (Peter Cilella) heads out to a reservation to save his friend Chris (Vinny Curran) get clean. When Chris refuses to go to rehab, Michael handcuffs his friend to the wall. However, while examining the property, Michael discovers some old photos and film. It feels like someone is playing a game with them. Could it be the reservation security personnel, who had no idea Chris was squatting? Could it be the junkies, whom Chris owes money? Or could it be something else, something a little more supernatural?

RESOLUTION has its flaws. It never truly makes much sense, which is perhaps the most unforgivable Indie horror sin. The plot feels stretched out; this is a 90 minute film that could've been 75 or so, easily. However, despite these (admittedly critical) faults, RESOLUTION has an absolutely fantastic atmosphere; things never feel very safe, as though at any second the whole world could be knocked out of whack. And the lead actors have outstanding chemistry; their friendship keeps the film going, even when things (maybe?) begin spiraling out of hand. I can't recommend RESOLUTION to everyone, because it certainly doesn't appeal to mass audiences. But for those who like horror films that stick around a while, that go for more atmospheric scares as opposed to jump scares, then this one is at least worth a shot.

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.
