The packaging art for the blu-ray was more than above average which makes you feel less guilty about spending all that money on a movie. The movie itself is solid but a little convoluted. Oh yah, and that's a great effin' car!

HASH(0xa8f738c4) out of 5 stars There is more than one kind of apocalypse July 21 2014
By Paul Donovan - Published on Amazon.com
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.

8. The movie shows that some apocalypses really do happen. But they are not global, they are personal.

9. This movie is a beautiful emo-hipster tragedy, and is further proof that some great movies never make it to your local pop culture movie theater.

HASH(0xa8dad87c) out of 5 stars Kills it! Nov. 16 2011
By Evelyn Waugh - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa983dd70) out of 5 stars Good for what it is July 30 2012
By Brian A. Schar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
For a movie shot on pocket change and gas money, "Bellflower" succeeds brilliantly. The filmmakers utilize low-budget locations in a way that makes sense for the movie, and get a great look with digital shooting. IMDB claims the director made the cameras himself; I can believe it, because the cinematography is creative, unusual and high-quality. The actors, especially in the first act, come across very naturally and actually act like real human beings.

One thing that "Bellflower" captures very well is the downside of that "free-spirited" girl who captures the imagination and heart of the introverted guy. She's great, and fun, but a girl who loves to do whatever comes into her head at any given time will sooner than later move on to someone or something more interesting. However, that's where this movie starts to break down. It starts off energetic and fun, loses its way in the second act, and doesn't start to come on strong again until the end of the second act. The characters start to break character, and continuity breaks down, before you start to have an idea as to why. I knock off two stars primarily for these reasons.

The 30-minute "making of" featurette is almost better than the movie itself. It gives you a raw, unvarnished look at what it takes to break into the movie business. The writer/director lives in a garage in conditions barely better than a homeless man. The team scrounged semi-abandoned office space as a production headquarters that they at times lived in; they barely had money for food; and, after the SXSW debut of the film, they didn't have enough money to get home but for an unsolicited $1000 cash from P Diddy. What they had was the burning desire to make a movie, and because they were dirt poor and broke they had no option but to succeed. Young people who dream of hitting it big in Hollywood need to watch this.

This is worth a rent, but I would definitely rent it before I bought it.

HASH(0xa8db22c4) out of 5 stars It's Unique, Either You Love it or Hate it Jan. 10 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Woodrow (Evan Glodell, who also writes and directs) and Aiden (Tyler Dawson) are weapon-making slackers in North Hollywood, both avid fans of a post-apocalyptic action film "Mad Max 2" and its charismatic villain Humungus. One day Woodrow meets a girl named Milly (Jessie Wiseman) while joining in a cricket eating contest. In spite of Milly's warning that she will hurt him, Woodrow starts dating her until the day when, as the film's subtitle says, "All Things End."

Maybe I should not tell you much about the film's second half, where you will see some terrible events that might or might not happen. All I can say is that, compared to the first part, of which content is raw and real, the second part is unnecessarily confusing. This part could be much better with a simpler narrative or tighter editing.

Despite the real flame-throwers used in the film, "Bellflower" is a drama. Made on a budget of 17,000 dollars, this would be easily characterized as "one-of-a-kind" film. The film's orange-tinted photography is unique, to be sure, and so is the black "Medusa" car, but the film's story is at its heart a pretty orthodox one, about friendship between males with nowhere to go. If Lars von Trier directed a bromance, perhaps it would be something like "Bellflower."

"Bellflower" has distinctive visual qualities that alone are worth watching, but its narrative needs improvement.

HASH(0xa8db2474) out of 5 stars Skip to minute 47. I promise you won't miss anything important. March 24 2015
By Shannon Griggs - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The first 50 minutes of this movie is basically a chick flick with swearing. Skip to about minute 47, and you have yourself a decent movie from then on. I promise you won't miss anything that important to the story. Character buildup is typically important, but the buildup in this movie was terrible, mind-numbing, unnecessary, and irrelevant.
