Bellflower is the story of two friends who spend their time building flamethrowers and weapons of mass destruction to prepare for the apocalypse until love and infidelity tears their world to pieces. The cinematography was gorgeous and each frame of the film could be a work of art. The director, Evan Glodell, wrote, starred in and built the camera for the film. Total cost for this film $17,000 – that’s right. For a first time director it is exciting to know there will be more from him in the future. This film isn’t perfect but I loved it. It was dark and beautiful and gives a unique perspective on what it is to be a man in the 21st century.  I have never seen a film like this. Evan Glodell is the future of film.

Two friends that have grown up obsessed with Mad Max and all things post-apocalyptic are the focus of this film. This movie surprised me in how much I was pulled in and enjoyed it. At first, I was not a fan of the two main characters and their acting. As the movie progressed the acting improved so much and was highlighted by the amazing cinematography. The writer, director and star of the film, Evan Glodell, built the camera himself. Glodell’s story is interesting enough that anyone should see this movie. I repeatedly said WTF while watching this and will watch this film again!
