“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.” – Coatwolf Productions
My thoughts: This movie looks unbelievable. I hate to use the same word that everyone else is using but “gritty” most definitely comes to mind while watching this trailer. The cinematography looks incredible – look at that lighting! And a major plus is the fact that I’m intrigued by the plot. The reviews have been insane and an official selection from Sundance? I’m in. One more thing: that bitchin’ song in the trailer for Bellflower? “Secrets” by Small Town Zeros. How delicious is that beat?
