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 100 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(0xa0906d20) 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(0xa0905ea0) out of 5 stars Character-driven horror at its finest Jan. 22 2015
By Alex C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Mike wants to help his friend Chris kick his crack addiction, so when Chris refuses to go to rehab, Mike handcuffs him to the wall of his cabin, forcing him to go cold turkey. It's well-acted with great dynamic between the two leads. I feel it could've made for a pretty decent drama if the filmmakers had just left it at that. Thankfully, though, because dramas really aren't my cup of tea, there's more to the story. Mike keeps finding weird old photos, books, and films. What's on them and what they're about isn't really clear, but it's creepy nonetheless. Eventually, he finds a video of himself and Chris, taken unknown to them a couple days earlier. That's all I'll say of the plot. Resolution is a fantastic movie, a slow pot-boiler that's well worth a watch for anyone serious about finding good (if not particularly scary) horror movies or just ones that stand out above the typical cheap slop.

HASH(0xa0ad9c18) out of 5 stars creepy slow burning film Nov. 16 2014
By M. S. Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is one of those films like "The Battery" that is best watched alone so you can immerse yourself in the plot. I was often confused but totally engaged in the idea of two guys who discover they're playing roles in some bigger entity's story. Totally freaky idea and I was never quite sure what was going on but its a real thinking mans sci-fi film.

HASH(0xa0ba754c) 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.
