      This is just another example of how brilliant and how insightful you are in doing critical analysis on film. Frankly, I seldom see this level of authority on film. It's so well communicated.

        Hello friends, can someone recommend movies that are similar to The Endless and Resolution?

          @R. P. So I watched both Hereditary and Midsommar and I must say I really loved Hereditary, but Midsommar was probably one of the most predictable and boring films i've ever seen. I basically knew exactly what is going to happen the moment they arrived in the fields..

          Ari Aster (director of "Hereditary", which is an absolutely amazing film too) recently made a film called "Midsommar" (it's been released like a couple weeks ago), that shares a similar concept of isolated religious community with "The Endless". But it's pretty much the only thing they have in common. Nonetheless, "Midsommar" is great and deserves your attention. Give it a go.

            Love you to death and definitely not criticizing, but can you give us the backstory on how you went to interview two people and didn't bring a mic for yourself? Also, really wish there were more questions about Spring. All of their movies are amazing but I feel like that one gets overlooked because it's not set in the same universe as the other two.

              Can someone please tell me what Anna whispered at the dining table towards the end? I have a feeling it's about how she slept with Aaron but her mouth movements don't really prove that or maybe I'm just not thinking right. Either way, I'm dying to know.

                Can you do Under the Silver Lake, because like, I tried to understand it, and I think I caught on to some stuff, maybe the whole thing...but I need a legit expert to give me his take. Please think about it, and never stop making content!

                    I've seen endless and resolution and loved both. i absolutely loved the directing and cinematography with the camera following the cast kinda like the "god" or "monster" taking the place of the people watching or likewise and just the mystery of the story and storytelling. love their work!

                                    So much room for exploration in this world. I just wanted to know more about it. Great movie.

                                      Why no one mentions that at the end Justin says "you figured it out?".


                                      maybe it has something to do with the fuel meter that is on empty, he says it "has always been like that". maybe "always" means the memory he can access of previous loops, even though it is not certain whether the loop has actually happened. i don't think the fuel bit was just to show how good brothers they now are and how much Justin trust Aarons judgment on the amount of fuel in the car.


                                      also the birds flying around at the ending is clear that they are still in their own loop.


                                      so it somehow seems they are still in a loop. but aware of it and a bit in control by being able to access memories from their own small loops because he can communicate with "IT".

                                        I really NEED to see this movie again, because I've seen it only once at the Paris Film Festival.
                                        (and will regret forever to NOT have bought drinks to this two guys which were there that night)
                                        Since then, I've been adamant with everyone I know : you GOT to see this movie!

                                        But anyway, regarding the end, I got my little theory of another big loop somehow, because of the child drawing.
                                        It is "outside" the camp, yet still fresh and not aging.
                                        It's part of a loop.
                                        And it even raises the question : do the car accident of "the mom" is fitting in all this ? Is it something the entity planned or something like that ?

                                        But then again : I got to see movie a few more times before really sticking to any of my current hypothesis.

                                          As a MASSIVE Lovecraft horror fan, these guys are probably the only guys that have the talent to capture a Lovecraft story on screen and actually do it justice! They give me hope for the horror genre!

                                            The the move "Spring" they mention a character "Shitty Carl" as bar tender. Shitty Carl is also a character in Endless. Fun Fact. Common Universe. I love it.

I was impressed, blown away by the creativity on such a small budget. Hollywood should learn some lessons from this, enough with the overblown CGI and bullshit stories already, raw is the way to go. I felt this movie, really felt it for days after watching. Bravo guys, bra-fucking-vo!
