The story that follows two friends, Aiden (played by Tyler Dawson) and Woodrow (played by Evan Glodell), as they venture out into Los Angeles where they spend their days building flame-throwers and other weapons of mass destruction in anticipation of a global apocalypse is as odd as they come.
But when it premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, it received high praises. Of Bellflower, even the New York Times were inclined to say, ““Mr. Glodell’s enthusiasm and ability to turn chump change into cinema, as well as the excitement he generated at Sundance and afterward, bring to mind Robert Rodriguez’s arrival at Sundance in 1993 with his debut feature, El Mariachi. Mr. Glodell is working distinctly different story terrain, however — in this case, an affair gone apocalyptic — and with technical virtuosity and beauty.”
Bellflower (made with a minimal budget and shot on a self-assembled camera) has a story line that extends into a tailspin of betrayal, love, hate, infidelity, and extreme violence, more devastating and fiery than any of Aiden’s and Woodrow’s apocalyptic fantasies.
Where did it suddenly go wrong? And how?:
