Stars: Peter Cilella, Vinny Curran, Kurt David Anderson, Emily Montague, Skyler Meacham, Zahn McClarnon
Frankly, we’re not quite sure what to make of Resolution, the enigmatic feature from directors Aaron Scott Moorhead and Justin Benson (who also wrote the screenplay). All that’s known about the film is that it’s unclassifiable in terms of genre, though the filmmakers have confirmed that horror fans won’t be disappointed. Intrigue, check.
As far as the concept goes, Resolution has a rather lean premise: A guy named Michael (Peter Cilella) convinces his self-destructive best friend (Vinny Curran) to spend time in an unconventional, stay-at-home rehab, which leads to encounters with “personal demons, the consequences of past actions, and forces beyond their control.”
Are we talking about ghosts? A homicidal back-story that creeps into the present? Beer bottles that come to life and kill at will? Who the hell knows, but, to Resolution’s credit, this year’s Tribeca Film Festival sports very few movies as mysterious as the one devised by Sirs Benson and Moorhead.
