SXSW FILM 2011
By Don Simpson | March 23, 2011
Bellflower follows best friends, Woodrow (Evan Glodell) and Aiden (Tyler Dawson), as they prepare their two-man imaginary gang “Mother Medusa” for a global apocalypse. To prepare for this event the duo builds weapons of mass destruction, such as an honest to goodness flame-thrower and a tricked-out car named MEDUSA. Woodrow meets Milly (Jessie Wiseman) during a alcohol-fueled cricket-eating contest and it is love at first bite; that is until…well, you will just have to watch Bellflower to find out.
A dark tale of betrayal, infidelity and violence that unleashes the menacing apocalyptic fantasies within Woodrow’s subconscious, Bellflower painfully discusses the highs and lows of love. Smells Like Screen Spirit met with Bellflower writer/director/star Evan Glodell (who also serves as editor and producer), during SXSW 2011 at the Highball to discuss where all of this lovelorn bitterness came from.
