Bellflower

 (2011)

Bellflower Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

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.

Bellflower Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

In the true do-it-yourself spirit of independent film, writer-director, etc. Evan Glodell also built the digital camera used to shoot Bellflower, a Silicon Imaging SI-2K Mini Digital camera outfitted with vintage parts and Russian lenses. Glodell christened the finished product the "Coatwolf Model II", and the result is unlike any digital image I've ever seen. It has no hard edges or harshness to it; indeed, at first blush, one might be pardoned for thinking that Bellflower was shot on consumer grade DV. But as you look more closely, you begin to realize that the frame has more detail and objects are much better defined that has ever been possible with consumer DV. More importantly, colors are stronger, and the image is able to handle sudden, strong contrasts, like the crucial bursts of flame from the home-made flamethrower (which the production company built for real). Blacks are actually black, and none of the artifacting typically seen in low-resolution digital cinematography is anywhere to be found. In short, what Glodell has achieved is the illusion of a grungy look without compromising the quality of his image.

There is, however, a pervasive oddity for which I cannot account. In shot after shot, large flecks of dirt and/or smears of grime appear on the camera lens. Since Bellflower was made by an auteur sufficiently intense to build his own camera and with digital cinematography that would allow instantaneous review of every take, it's impossible to believe that this was accidental, especially since the "dirty lens" phenomenon recurs throughout the film. I'm therefore forced to conclude that it's some sort of visual device intended to complement the dry, dirty locale and, perhaps, comment on the messy lives of the characters in their metaphorical Mad Max wasteland. For my money, it's a distraction and would have been better omitted. In any case, as a reviewer I'm obliged to report it.

Oscilloscope Labs has used a BD-50; so compression errors are not an issue. I wasn't able to see Bellflower theatrically, because it hasn't played at a theater in New York City, as of the date of this review. However, as is typically the case with Blu-rays sourced from films acquired digitally and/or finished on a digital intermediate, one can proceed with a high degree of confidence that what appears on the disc matches the theatrical presentation.


Bellflower Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The DTS lossless track for Bellflower is dominated by dialogue, which is always clear, but that doesn't mean it lacks sophisticated sound editing. Glodell understands the virtue of using sudden shifts in sound, whether from volume to silence or vice versa, to punctuate drama and emphasize emotional states. When your story includes elements like muscle cars and flamethrowers, these are rich elements to play with. The mix also gets effective atmosphere out of situations like freeway driving or the bar where Milly and Woodrow meet, and in some instances sounds aren't tied to any source cue but evoke a state of mind, especially in the latter half of the film. There are several moody and appropriate "garage band" songs by the film's editor, Jonathan Keevil, which Glodell claims he just happened to stumble across during the editing process, and they blend well with the more traditional underscoring credited to Kevin MacLeod.
