A character driven picture that is divided in chapters and deals with relationships, friendship, love, and apocalyptic fantasies. Woodrow and Aiden (Evan Glodell and Tyler Dawson) try to create a flamethrower and customize a muscle car. at a bar they meet Milly (Jessie Wiseman) and Courtney (Rebekah Brandes ). Woodrow and Milly fall in love while Aiden had a crush with Courtney. Mike (Vincent Grashaw) answers the door when Woodrow picks up Milly on their first date.
Bellflower is an innovative character driven indie film ride about young adults finding meaning in their lives. a few good lines include: Aiden – “Rise and shine! Cmon... Up! No time for depressed-brain-damaged-sweet-dudes to lay around in bed!” Milly – “Who are you, where are you from, what do you do?” “Because I’ll hurt you.” Soundtrack and acting were fascinating and realistic respectively. Style of directing was lifelike and unique because of the director’s creativity in creating his own camera. Some observations this reviewer had were how the characters manage to purchase stuff without any source of income, lack of a good plot, overloaded flashbacks and the conclusion of Aiden’s whereabouts. It is depressing and dark filled with flawed figures who have lost their senses. Bellflower is definitely not for everybody’s taste; it shows a lot of promise in terms of the writer/director and probably repeat viewings to further comprehend this stylish flick.
