Saw this today. Not fantasy, not horror...just a painful mumblecore flick about repulsive people who have no shortage of funds despite not having anything resembling a job. And, note to the writer/director/lead...vague was it real/wasn't it real dream sequences are not a substitute for good storytelling. Some solid ideas couched in a 'just out of film school' arthouse movie. The incredible finale' that I was promised was a masturbatory mess that made absolutely no sense and resolved nothing. As a matter of fact the film just dissolved into a random image rotation that completely made the first 2/3rds of the movie irrelevant. Adgy will love this movie because it has LGK music selections like Lykki Li.Review: ‘Bellflower’ A Burnt-Out, Bloody, Brave Debut > The Playlist
Fresh from a warm reception at Sundance, Evan Glodell’s “Bellflower” arrives as a turbo charged indictment of male adolescent fantasy and a biting critique of misplaced machismo. A burnt-out, bloody, brave debut, “Bellflower” rides out the fallout from a relationship to a stomach-churning conclusion…or does it?
I really want to see this. Starts on Friday at the Nuart.
