¡Qué horror! 2013
Michael (Peter Cilella) and Chris (Vinny Curran) are the best of friends. The thing is, Chris is a junkie caught in a downward spiral who’s been given up on by virtually everyone he knows, so Michael makes a last ditch effort to save him by forcibly making him go cold turkey in an isolated, ramshackle shack.
Things do not go according to plan.
Co-directors Justin Benson (who also wrote the screenplay) and Aaron Scott Moorhead (who also shot the film) bring us this excellent piece of ambiguous, oblique horror.
If you’re the type that needs to have the whys and wherefores of your cinematic horror underlined neatly by running time’s end, then this may not be the film for you.
If however, you appreciate tone and character, Resolution* is definitely something to watch out for.
* Brilliant title, that, given what the film is ultimately about…
