Two friends spend all their free time building flame-throwers and weapons of mass destruction in hopes that a global apocalypse will occur and clear the runway for their imaginary gang "Mother Medusa".
The youngest son of an alcoholic former boxer returns home, where he's trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament - a path that puts the fighter on a collision corner with his older brother.
During China's Tang dynasty the emperor has taken the princess of a neighboring province as wife. She has borne him two sons and raised his eldest. Now his control over his dominion is complete, including the royal family itself.
Bellflower follows two friends as they venture out into the world to begin their adult lives. Literally all their free time is spent building flame-throwers and weapons of mass destruction in hopes that a global apocalypse will occur and clear the runway for their imaginary gang "Mother Medusa". While waiting for the world to end, their call to excitement comes unexpectedly when one of them meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love. Quickly integrated into a new group of friends, they set off on a journey of betrayal, love, hate, infidelity and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies. Often life's simplest and most obvious truths are the hardest to see, but once you've burned everything to the ground it may be the only thing left standing. Written by

Your car is really bad ass dude. We could just get in the car, put the flamethrower in the trunk, leave town. Do you know how awesome it would be if we like went to some small town and went to one of the local bars, pulled up in that car? People would be like 'Holy shit, who are these guys?' and we would be like 'Come outside and take a look at our flamethrower". Dude, I don't think you realize how cool your car is. I'm fucking serious though dude. We could take the flamethrower and guns and ...

Amazingly well done chronicle of a pair of friends...
1st watched 3/11/2012 8 out of 10(Dir-Evan Glodell): Amazingly well done chronicle of a pair of friends who hook-up with some girls at a wild bar where they have a cricket eating contest and all hell breaks loose after this. That previous sentence a breakdown of this entire movie was hard to come up with because there is so much more to this movie than a 1-sentence synopsis. The story is basically about the main character, Woodrow, played by the writer & director of the film Evan Glodell, who becomes involved with a girl named Milly, who he starts the movie eating crickets with in the contest. He gets her number and they go on a date the next day all the way across the country to a dive in Texas on a dare from Milly. Their no-holds-barred friendships with each other and another guy friend involve a lot of drinking, drugs, and hardcore things like building flame throwers, and jacking up a car to look like a post-apocalyptic vehicle from Mad Max called Medusa, but we also see that these are real people who can be hurt as well. After the couple are in a relationship for awhile, Milly cheats on Woodrow with a roommate(whom she apparently had a prior relationship with), he gets hit by a car and injured and what happens after this is somewhat unclear. The reason is that we are shown two different versions of the rest of the movie by the filmmaker. One is a more hardcore revenge plot, and the other one is much lighter. We are given hints that Woodrow received some possible brain damage so we're not sure what we are seeing is coming from his mind or truly happening, and we're not even sure what's happened when the movie finishes. This is a one-of-a-kind movie experience from Mr. Glodell, and it's obviously a passion-project that he's created here. Even if everything else he creates is trash, I have become one of his fans. Don't miss this one.
