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 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.

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.

Micro budget masterpiece, just don't expect the usual spoon fed stuff Hollywood normally spits out. I hope the director gets a chance to show what he can do with a real budget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Indie! November 20, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As a nearly 50-year-old, and still feeling and thinking at half that age, I am obviously not all that ensconced "in" that age bracket when I see something that grabs my attention as expediently and with such dominion that I sat up and took notice of the immediacy of what I was seeing and hearing in the trailer; Bless the Beasts and the Children, but even moreso the editor of this trailer, as it got my attention so quickly that my Centrum 50s' spilled and scattered over my glass tabletop by my reaction like so many albino hydrocodones falling tragically from a broken Pez dispenser. Once my vitamins (and temerity) had been successfully gathered, I watched it another 10-12X before finding the cheapest Blu-Ray I could find (through Amazon, of course), pushed the "Buy Now" button and awaited it's delivery daily to see if the film warranted my initial reaction. It did. Not since "Searching For The Wrong-Eyed Jesus" has an Indy film had such a complementary soundtrack that both adds to and keeps the viewers on their collective toes to add to the benefit of the film and help to complete it, too. Far too many films today rely on big-budgeted royalty checks and generalized 'guesses' as to "well, this song might sound good dropped in here" in determining their placement, rather than to the overall feel and rhythm of the film, itself. These independent artists were pure fresh air to me, particularly the Small Town Zeros-"Secrets", which lent itself to the apocalyptic subtext succinctly. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Creative Cinema or Painful Enema ? November 18, 2011
Format:DVD
I will be very curious to see what shape the accumulative consumer response to this movie eventually turns out to be. I think this is one of those "love it" or "hated it" type of offerings. On one hand, this movie's creation shows great talent by Evan Goodell (wrote & directed & starred) and Joel Hodge (cinematographer) for pulling this off on such a limited budget. As I understand it Goodell even cobbled together his own new type of camera to deliver some of the films more unique visuals.

Unfortunately there is always a "second hand". This is a meandering buddy flick of two "Dudes" (how often can you tolerate hearing that?) preparing for the fall of society and finding love along the way. It eventually devolves into a severely irritating & morose "ménage a trios" of incoherency.

Along the way these "Dudes" build various creations with which to prosper in the anticipated post apocalyptic world and I have to say that the "Medusa" is one fine set of wheels in the best of the "Mad Max" genre. Evan Goodel took a 1972 Buick Skylark and added internal role bars, internal monitor/ external video surveillance cameras, Public Address system, pneumatic rear suspension adjustment, exhaust tailpipes that throw monster flame & smoke screens, rear bleach injectors to coat the wheels for excellent smoking, screeching, burning "drifts".....and a CD player.

This roaring mobile "Dude" machine is almost worth the price to the see movie alone. Hard movie to rate, I give it one star for story coherency, one more star for the resourcefulness of "indie" projects, and finally one last star for the car of my dreams.
