Very intense low-budgett film, definitely recommended. Ending could be little better tho.
In Resolution, one man is drawn to the woods by a strange video message from his best friend, a tweaker in dire need of an intervention. As Mike tries to save Chris from himself in a disused cabin, they are visited by a number of creeps, and manipulated by a presence that communicates with them via photos and recordings of all kinds. Just what is happening is open to interpretation, be it supernatural or Lovecraftian science-fiction, but the way the gate flashes on the camera also opens up the metaphor of the film maker as cruel god, forcing characters to play out their comedies and tragedies. Perhaps it explains where all those weird characters come from when they're essentially holed up in the woods, and it certainly connects with the mysterious entity's need for resolution, the sort of climax and closure only really required of stories, as opposed to life. By itself, it's intriguing if not entirely satisfying. Paired with The Endless, which intersects with it, I'd use the same qualifiers. The same mystery plays out in both films, undermining each one's effectiveness. I like The Endless' premise better, but I think I like the solutions suggested in Resolution best.
honestly i didn't care about the supernatural stuff but the two guys were great
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
