TRT: 105 min | United States | Color
World Premiere: Sundance Film Festival 2011
Best friends Woodrow and Aiden spend all of their free time building MAD MAX-inspired flamethrowers and muscle cars in preparation for a global apocalypse. But when Woodrow meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love, he and Aiden quickly integrate into a new group of friends, setting off on a journey of love and hate, betrayal, infidelity, and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies.
“Here’s a movie that starts in your face and, amazingly, keeps coming at you. That’s a good thing. Writer-director Evan Glodell’s explosive debut feature is a thing of toxic beauty.”
Peter Travers — Rolling Stone
“(Bellflower) represents the debut of a one-of-a-kind filmmaker, a natural driven by wild energy, like Tarantino.”
— Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times
