||Synopsis: Bellflower follows two friends as they venture out into the world to begin their adult lives. Literally all their free time is spent building flame-throwers and weapons of mass destruction in hopes that a global apocalypse will occur and clear the runway for their imaginary gang "Mother Medusa". While waiting for the world to end, their call to excitement comes unexpectedly when one of them meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love. Quickly integrated into a new group of friends, they set off on a journey of betrayal, love, hate, infidelity and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies. Often life's simplest and most obvious truths are the hardest to see, but once you've burned everything to the ground it may be the only thing left standing. Written by Coatwolf Productions

Watch Bellflower - Alternative Versions.
I have to be honest here, I am barely ever compelled to come on the web
and write a review for a movie with a negative thrust. For one thing, I
watch all types of films, even the so-called no budget or low budget
films that other people will stay clear from. In fact, just this year,
I have seen all the Sundance NEXT films, some at the Sundance premiere
in January, and some, like BELLFLOWER, only recently. I feel the need
to clear that first, so that I'm not accused of a negative bias for
ultra small films.
I had heard the buzz of BELLFLOWER at Sundance, and I missed it, and my
trip to SXSW was too brief to catch, so, I waited patiently for the
theatrical. Up until then, I had read many things about the movie,
plenty of positive reviews, and was pretty enthralled by the trailer. I
should have been a little more cautious on the get go, seeing that even
the trailer was a little fishy. You know, it was extremely light on
substance, but full of those great pull quotes from the likes of Peter
Travers, the king of whoring a few positive lines for maximum effect.
And, of course, the reviews themselves were mostly copies of one
another, with a great chunk of prose spent on context based stuff like,
"the film cost 17,000", or "they made there own camera's", and even,
"he wrote about his own break-up". This stuff is mostly about
justification and the press angle, so, I'm not going fault the work on
But, lets get to the actual film itself, and how this particular film
outright compelled me to come on the web and give my two cents.
Basically, the film is in essence, a break up movie. The lead character
Woodrow, played here by the director himself is a typical "disaffected"
young man, who, along with his best friend spends his days drinking,
smoking and with the country boy craftsmanship of building "cool"
stuff. They are seen spending time blowing stuff up at the beginning.
Soon, they go out to what I assume is a dive bar, and low and behold, a
cricket eating contest (in LA mind you), when we meet our lead female,
the narrative conflict of the movie. We see Woodrow and soon to be lady
friend Milly engage in eating crickets in slow mo, while a "cool" music
track plays in the background. This is the essence of the movie. These
bits of music video montage scenes are in my mind, the only respectable
albeit very thin moments of the film, especially the final moments.
They come and go in-between some of the most banal, and base scenes I
have seen in years.
After this, Woodrow picks up Milly for a first date, and she proposes
they go and eat at the most disgusting restaurant around, and guess
what, Woodrow has a suggestion, but its located in Texas. So, what
happens next, shoot, they go to Texas. The film carries on in this
vein. I can go on, but even writing about it gets tiresome.
Anyways, to shorten this up, the relationship heads south, but for no
reason other then the fact that Milly tells Woodrow that she is going
to hurt him. And then she hurts him. Yup, thats it, because things go
bad in relationships, but the audience is left to just assume things
happen. The problem is, we are not lead to care any bit about them. All
this heartbreak stuff doesn't add up, when you don't buy any of it. The
film then continues to jump ahead and behind after an accident. And
then things get violent, but in a pretty safe way. The film basically
alludes to everything, and always in an extremely swallow, hey look at
me mom kind of way. But heck, they built a "totally sweet ride brah" .
With the finale going straight into film school cope out mode. I won't
say anymore, so that I don't spoil the twist.
As you can tell, I did not like this movie. It felt as cliché as could
be. I did not like the characters, all of whom became increasingly
annoying. I did not like the writing. I did not like the acting, which
goes into B level and below many, many times. And the visual style gets
pretty dang boring after awhile. Note to some reviewers; spend some
time on Vimeo, or Tumblr, and yeah, you got the visual aesthetic this
strives for. Basically, everybody is doing that anyway, and really,
swallow depth of field and especially tilt shift is boring when used
for no reason other then, "to look cool". Which apply describes the
hipster culture itself. It yells to be looked at, but on closer
inspection, you realize that all its desires are superficial. Thats all
And that sums up the film for me. Everything done for effect, and
nothing done to strive for a deeper reading. And thats the issue,
because its not even entertaining. In fact, its altogether boring, but
in the American style of boring, and not in the European,
sophisticated, by design way boring.
I guess maybe its utility is best served as a sort of Hollywood calling
card for the troupe, and for that, maybe it succeeds. But for something
that I have to pay money to watch, no. And truth be told, if this was
for free, I would probably pass as well.
