Someone called this hipstersploitation. I think that's a pretty funny and good way to describe this messy, aimless terrible acting film.
It's fun at times and some of their ideas and stupid stuff they get into is entertaining.

Description: An apocalyptic love story for the Mad Max generation, Evan Glodell’s impressive feature debut paints a classic, yet urgently contemporary, tale of the destructive power of love. Bellflower follows two friends who spend their time building flamethrowers and other weapons in the hope that a global apocalypse will occur and clea ... (more)

" Movie Exchange wrap up ~ Film Choice by The Giraffe External Review @ Tiny Mix Tapest This is certainly a memorable film and far more complex then just a mild surface viewing. There was a point where I really wanted to hate the film but I stuck with the film and began to feel a sense of poetry in the chaos. This is a film that I may have to watch again. I also watched this after watching "Blue Valentine" which I really didn't like at all. So, this film filled a nice void that was left b"

September Movie Journal - Xanadon't (28 movies items)

" Ah, yep. One of those attention-grabbing, up-start, genre-bending indie movies that I really wanted to like, but never quite could. There's a list of things to applaud, but an equal size list of "shit that annoyed me". The shit that annoyed me eventually won out, and I'm afraid that's what has stayed with me. I don't quite think it warrants the comparisons to Quentin Tarantino or Danny Boyle, but even so, the film interested me enough to keep my eye out for this director in future. "

"Angry young boys and slo-mo and mad max cars and poon tang and more anger and alcohol and unemployment and young love and fickle feelings and fucking flamethrowers. "

"First viewing - Feb. 7th A hell of a debut from a director worth keeping an eye on. Bellflower looks like nothing else I've seen & for the most part manages to be a truly unique film. The actors fully embody their characters, which also helps it along, and the story is engrossing throughout. Then as the ending unfolded I wasn't completely satisfied with it for reasons I won't discuss. Ah, but perhaps another viewing or three will persuade me to look more favorably on it. Still, I expect great "

Film Journal 2012 (58 movies items)

" January 31st - With so many low budget "realistic" relationship films it is interesting to see Bellflower approach it from the destructive male psyche. It starts with a "mumblecore" courting phase and then skips ahead to a betrayal and Grindhouse revenge fantasies. It is tough to make this leap with the film since it goes so over the top with a laughable morality that is even beneath the vapid characters and quickly becomes incoherent. Is it all a surreal artistic representation or is it so"

"MOST UNUSUAL CRITICAL BLURB AWARD "The poster says "A mix of John Hughes and Mad Max. One of the most strong and stylish critiques of the idiocy and confusion in young manhood since Fight Club." "

"Prior to the film's final 20 minutes, I was absolutely astounded by its gritty realism and by how well-developed the characters were. Unfortunately, the climax is a messy, pseudo-intellectual attempt at arthouse grandeur. I love films in which the line is blurred between what's real and what's not real, but not when it's done exclusively for the purpose of showing off. Bellflower was ripe with potential for greatness, so it's too bad - this could've been on par with A Boy and His Dog. "
