I saw Bellflower tonight with Laurie at The Roxie. Three times, it was not what I expected.
The quotes I read in the trailer are 100% true:
“I laughed, I gasped. I felth touched by the warmth. I marveled at how real it all seemed and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it” – Film.com
“Hallucinatory. Bellflower practically jumps off the screen.” – Rolling Stone
“A weird mix of John Hughes and Mad Max. One of the most trong and stylish critiques of the idiocy and confusion in young manhood since Fight Club” – MSN
“Bellflower is an explosive, outrageous, and dynamic first film that lives way outside the margins of what we call indie film today” – Hammer to Nail
“It is fucking intense. (director) Glodell threw me under the tires and I came out with grit and true catharsis.” – Me
See this film. I could try to warn you that it isn’t what you expect, but it wouldn’t do any good. Your mouth will still lie agape as mine was.
I have literally have worn that beard.
