Pick of the Week
Bellflower (Oscilloscope Pictures) — Bellflower, which features its writer/director Evan Glodell in the lead role, teeters at times into near satire with a Crispin Glover circa River’s Edge manic energy, but the story and the performances always in the end seem rooted in its sincere genuine intentions. Despite the pyrotechnics and manic mondo energy there is a bedrock sincere apocalyptic worldview that perfectly suits the age of the characters as they struggle to find their place in the world and restore some piece of self-identity after the turmoil of first love gone bad. It is an explosive, outrageous, and dynamic first film that lives way outside the margins of what we call indie film today. Read Mike S. Ryan’s full review. Available on DVD and in a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack.
Enemies of the People (Old Street Films) — Available on 2-Disc Special Edition DVD.
