Imagine a new indie romantic comedy. Now, imagine that same one infused with hallucinatory images played against killer music revolving around a main character who is obsessed with making cars and weapons that look like they belong in The Road Warrior. Good . . .I’m glad I now have your attention. Because, honestly, who doesn’t love themselves some Mad Max or Road Warrior? Bellflower is the new directorial debut by Evan Glodell. The film has ignited rave reviews by fans and critics at SXSW and Sundance.

Bellflower is an independent film that most likely will see a very limited release. It will be opening in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, August 5th, 2011. Bellflower is being distributed by Oscilloscope Laboratories, the same group that brought us Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale.
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.
