What Clark does suggest in this confrontational work is a cultural condition in American suburbia by which relations between parents and children are strained or even nonexistent.

...an exploitation teen movie in the pejorative sense of the word.

Much too concerned with flashing nude scenes of its barely legal cast to make a point or unfold a story.

Clark is not a moralist, which is good, but he is not much of a dramatist either. You get the impression that the fascination with youth in his movies, just like in his photos, provides an excuse for voyeurism.

A bit long and repetitive.
October 16, 2003
An extremely disturbing tale of escalating peer pressure.

'Bully' demands attention for the way in which it forces us to watch and digest a dark slice of American society. American beauty this ain't.

hose involved in the real life story this film is based on should be disgusted -- for both sides were truly cheated out of the respect they deserved.

Thanks, Larry Clark, for this festering little slice of suburban life: a perfect respite from 2001's summer of predictable Hollywood programming.

A brutal, though darkly humorous film.

Bully is a well-made film about an ugly incident. It deserves to be seen.

The first 45 minutes or so of Bully is so similar to Kids, with the teens doing absolutely nothing except having sex and getting high, that it almost negates the effectiveness of the rest of the film.
