TGB Breakdown Ep 2: Evan Glodell's Bellflower (Guest: Film Crit Hulk)

TGB Breakdown Episode 2: Evan Glodell's Bellflower

On this episode of The Golden Briefcase Breakdown, Tim & Jeremy are joined by Film Crit HULK (from TGB Episode 98) to go over an extremely spoiler-filled discussion on Evan Glodell's indie sensation of last year, Bellflower (out on DVD/Blu-Ray), featuring Medusa. The main purpose of these Breakdown episodes is to to ponder, discuss and challenge the films that we feel often need more talk than just a simple review. We breakdown the film to discuss plot devices, theories and endings in order to better understand the director's vision and hopefully to challenge listeners at home to re-evaluate the way they watch cinema.

Extra episodes of TGB Breakdown will be arriving about every month, and will appear here in addition to all of our regular weekly Golden Briefcase episodes. Beware - every episode of TGB Breakdown will contain MASSIVE SPOILERS for the film in discussion (this one is on Bellflower). You have been WARNED!

50%, Hulk?  That's a rather optimistic assessment.

I read that article by Drew McWeeny about Evan Glodell's favourite apocalypse movies. My face was contorted painfully the entire time I was reading it. I haven't seen a person who is so unaware and juvenile. Apparently "coolness" and being a "badass" is the only thing that's important to him. Bad sign.
