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.
