    Resurrection

    ★★★★

    Sundance, 2022 #13

    Spearheaded by a career-best performance from Rebecca Hall, and a wickedly evil supporting role from Tim Roth, "Resurrection" is a disturbing psychological horror chamber piece that subtly blends the surreal with reality so well, by the brutally spectacular finale, you won't know what is real.

    Provocative, nightmareishly horrifying, and psychologically charged, the screenplay is the stuff of mental terror, gas-lighting you every chance it gets, and increasingly notching up the anxiety-inducing intensity as the film beautifully builds…

    "This Is Just The Beginning"

    When you hear that last line of dialogue you know you've reached the final moments of "The Beginning," and you immediately begin to contemplate what you just witnessed, and when you genuinely consider the fact that this is just "the beginning," your jaw falls to the floor. 'Dune' is 85% world-building, 10% character development and 5% action, and that's by no means a complaint when you've been blessed with a film of such an epic…
