Whatever the motivations are that fuel director Clark, his movie can't be so easily dismissed as trash.
July 18, 2002
It's Larry Clark who's the bully, a cinematic bovver boy who just can't help himself.
June 28, 2002
La cinta peca en crudeza y no logra verosimilitud. Bully no alcanza la infame pero gloriosa fama de Kids.

If such material and the pessimism accompanying it make some people uncomfortable, maybe they're starting to get the point.
March 10, 2002
Joins the list of great American films about killing
February 28, 2002
A bleak and unrelenting picture of suburban teenage anomie.
February 20, 2002
There's something troubling about a film which, on the one hand, wants to take a moral stance about a lost generation, and on the other relishes shooting the nubile flesh of its young actors.

Larry Clark has an astonishing way of getting into the minds of teenagers.
December 4, 2001
a haunting work that raises more issues than it can fully address
October 25, 2001
It's a disturbing film, but it takes us nowhere.

If a misanthrope goes to a movie, then walks out and is glad to be among people because the filmmaker's world is so much uglier than the misanthrope's own, has the filmmaker accomplished something?

I found Bully absolutely riveting.
September 28, 2001
A sad, bracing -- and often great -- film.

[Clark's] admirers would no doubt call him unflinching, but his style looks more like voyeurism to me.
September 21, 2001
One of the most lecherous excuses for a film ever made.
September 18, 2001
there is a certain grizzled truth here, and once you get past the visual splendor of the bare thespians, you might just get a bit horrified-and isn't that what art's about?
September 14, 2001
The moral wasteland of suburban youth has been examined, earlier and better, in The River's Edge. Clark's leering leads nowhere: In Bully, he has nothing new to say, and, in the end, no real point to make.
September 14, 2001
The inordinate amount of flesh-based antics among the kids is geared to peeping tom status.
September 11, 2001
A nasty piece of work.
