Editorial Reviews

BELLFLOWER, a heartfelt story of obsession, friendship, young love gone awry, and an angst-ridden critique of and from Generation Y, is the debut feature from the mad scientist of a filmmaker Evan Glodell. Best friends Woodrow and Aiden spend all of their free time building MAD MAX-inspired flamethrowers and muscle cars in preparation for a global apocalypse. But when Woodrow meets a charismatic young woman named Milly and falls hard in love, he and Aiden quickly join a new group of friends, setting off on a journey of love and hate, betrayal, infidelity, and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies. Filmed using Glodell's custom-built cameras and showcasing his real-life creations (among them, homemade flamethrowers and the fire-spewing 1972 Buick Skylark, Medusa), BELLFLOWER is a hallucinatory and wholly unique ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is more than one kind of apocalypse July 21, 2014
Format:DVD
Nine Things About the Movie "Bellflower" [USA, 2011]

1. I usually find romantic dramas to be predictable and boring. But this movie is a rare exception.

2. It’s about two best friends, Aiden and Woodrow, who moved to California together to make their lives different. They spend their spare time (which they have a lot of) fantasizing about what they would do during the apocalypse. They build “Mad Max”-inspired cars and flamethrowers as their hobby.

3. Woodrow falls in love with a girl named Milly, and Aiden starts spending time with a girl named Courtney. They embark on their respective relationships, which are realistic and heartfelt. But halfway through the movie, things go bad. There is cheating, car accidents, brain damage, and betrayal.

4. The last half hour of the movie splits into two different timelines, and it is up to you to decide which one is the real one and which one is imaginary.

5. The movie works largely because of the two lead actors. Tyler Dawson plays Aiden and Evan Glodell plays Woodrow (Glodell also wrote and directed the movie). It’s one of the best portrayals of adult male best friends I’ve ever seen. They perfectly illustrate the young adult male psyche dealing with love, friendship, and the realization that idealism rusts away, that changing where you live doesn't change who you are.

6.The cinematography by Joel Hodge is very unique. Beautiful macro shots combine with dirty lenses and grungy perspectives to give the film a look I’ve never seen before. It was nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Cinematography.

7. No matter which version of the timeline you believe, if you watch all the way through the credits you may get confused again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kills it! November 16, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
An abridged version of my review:
Bellflower is badass.

But to go into further detail for those who need more convincing, this film swallows you into a separate existence of envious invention. Shot on a homemade camera, it follows two dudes as they build homemade flame throwers to attach to their reconstructed apocalyptic car, aptly named Medusa. The cinematography is mind blowing, with hazes of golden yellow lurking in most scenes, which perfectly compliments the amount of fire and explosions. In all honesty it's a real bummer that more people haven't seen this, as I fully plan on forcing it onto my friends. The cars, the flames, the soundtrack (!!!!), the painful demise of a relationship, everything about this film is tangible and personal. Initially I wanted to see this because I am a lame girl and I thought it would be an edgy, indie romance sort of vibe, and I liked the homemade aspects of its production. Instead I found out that I want a flame thrower. And a car with a secret whiskey spout for mid-ride pick me ups. But instead I just got the movie on dvd.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dude? Dude? January 23, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
On one hand, BF plays out as it likely would in the lives and imaginations of two inept, inarticulate white males going nowhere in their early twenties. They attract inept, inarticulate white females going nowhere in their early twenties, and it doesn't go well for any of the parties involved. The film takes its fictions seriously, the plot never strays from where it has to go once the characters are established, and those qualities are admirable.

On the other hand, it only takes a minute to suss out that the two male leads are inept, inarticulate, and going nowhere. Which leaves the viewer with no real plot progression, memorable moments or surprises, flamethrowers notwithstanding. You know before they speak that nothing they say will be poignant, stunning, funny, or anything other than a platitude peppered with f-bombs and dudes. And you know whatever conclusions they draw, daydreams they have or actions they take will be dunderheaded, futile, and likely destructive as well.

Honestly, I can't tell if the writer/director is cleverly commenting on a hipster subculture that has moved beyond fixies to arsenals, or if this is just something not very far from the reality of an inarticulate, inept new filmmaker who doesn't have anything to convey.

Stumped gets two stars.

Easy to miss the point to this movie. Beautifully shot, with themes that everyone can identify with. You will see yourself in the characters of this move. You will see how simple and complex it all is. An amazing and brilliant movie that I highly recommend.

<strong>Bellflower</strong> (Evan Glodell, 2011)

I grant you, I have not yet seen many films made in 2011 (nine, according to my spreadsheet) and most of those have ranged from the aggressively mediocre to the outrageously awful (if you value your sanity, avoid <em>2012: Zombie Apocalypse</em> at all costs), and so I probably have no business opining on the best, worst, or anything else of 2011. And yet I will still tell you: when the dust settles, say five years from now when I have fifty or sixty movies made in 2011 under my belt, <em>Bellflower</em>, if it is not still perched atop my Best of 2011 list, is pretty much guarantted to still be somewhere in the top three. It's that good. Which is not to say it doesn't have its flaws, but it's still that good.

Plot: two slackers, Woodrow (director Glodell in his first feature appearance) and Aiden (Tyler Dawson, also in his first feature appearance), are obsessed with <em>The Road Warrior</em>, spending their days building flamethrowers and drawing concept art for their version of Medusa, Mel Gibson's car in the film. Life is going along just peachy unil Woodrow meets Milly (Jessie Wiseman in her first screen appearance), an outgoing, vivacious woman who he finds himself in a relationship with very quickly. This is the beginning of the strain on Woodrow and Aiden's friendship; the story, which develops an episodic feel later on, details the way the relationships between Woodrow, Aiden, and Milly's circle of friends change as the events that start from Woodrow and Milly's impulsive decision to drive to Texas on their first date escalate.

First off: this fim was criminally mismarketed as a sci-fi feature.
