Sundance Review: Resurrection is a disturbing film that will make you think about it!

Margaret’s life is in order. She is capable, disciplined, and successful. Everything is under control. That is, until David returns, carrying with him the horrors of Margaret’s past.

And now we have my favorite film of Sundance 2022 Resurrection! The film will most certainly not be for everyone, as it is a disturbing film that takes it’s time to develop the plot. However this film absolutely worked for me, Rebecca Hall’s performance is both incredible and haunting, her performance here truly adds to the film’s atmosphere and truly brings a bizarre energy as well. There’s one particular scene where Rebecca Hall has a 10 minute monologue all done in one take that is absolutely haunting yet beautiful at the same time, it shows how insanely committed she is as an actress. The atmosphere of the film is disturbing and very tense especially combined with the cinematography that feels like it’s from another world, I’m not sure how I would describe it but that’s the best way to put it. It’s such a haunting and focused feel that really captures the film’s bizarre nature, all of this builds up to the final act which completely loses it in the best way possible. It goes from being disturbing and bizarre to being completely horrifying as well as being even more disturbing. It’s truly fantastic to see the film go through many transformations throughout the running time, Resurrection heavily reminds me of something that David Cronenberg would make, it uses some elements of Cronenberg but makes them it’s own. Resurrection is a film that must absolutely be seen when going in knowing as little as possible. It’s such a disturbing yet fascinating experience I did not want to end!

Resurrection currently has no release date but will be released by IFC Films and Shudder later this year!

10/10 A+
