More Info:
  • Roger Ebert

    Larry Clark's Bully calls the bluff of movies that pretend to be about murder but are really about entertainment. His film has all the sadness and shabbiness, all the mess and cruelty and thoughtless stupidity of the real thing.

  • Andrew O'Hehir

    If you stick with Bully through its seemingly endless repetition of themes and its hurl-inducing hand-held camerawork, it does build a crude, indefinable power. Full Review
  • David Ansen

    Ferocious and sometimes creepily funny, Bully is a raunchy suburban "Crime and Punishment."

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    The tone -- a combination of earnestness and gallows humor -- is strangely appropriate.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    The movie's somber message is worth heeding, and the acting is mostly excellent.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    There's a terrible beauty to the work of Larry Clark, the controversial photographer turned filmmaker, that transcends chic nihilism.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    That the actors can work under such scrutiny is amazing, and they are superb. The standout is Brad Renfro as Marty, the kid most under the thumb of the neighborhood bully.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The important thing is that Clark has found a new way to be creepy, which isn't easy. In the process he has created something irresistibly watchable, the kind of original piece that might mean less but reveal more than its creator intended.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    With its smooth skinned cast and demonized adults, doesn't feel very authentic.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Clark denies his audience the catharsis, resolution and renewal of classical tragedy. The film reduces its viewers to helplessness, and I'm not sure that's its intent.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    Unpleasant stuff, and Clark pounces on the material with his usual relish and a discomfiting combination of moralizing and prurience.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    If it weren't so rivetingly realistic, it would be an easy film to dismiss. And if it weren't so easily dismissible, it would be an easy film to defend.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    It feels like a peek into the closet of a pedophile and it's genuinely discomforting.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The film's start-and-go rhythm can be as maddening as the characters' amorality and sheer wallowing stupidity, but Clark has an uncanny talent for putting atmosphere on celluloid.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    One has to wonder about the mind-set of a middle-aged filmmaker who repeatedly seeks out material about amoral and promiscuous teenagers with little to say.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    Whatever his intentions, Clark, in his third outing as a director, has come up with a film that is seriously flawed.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    Like the recent "Baise-moi," Bully is a whole lot of shock and titillation trying to pretend it's saying something. Unlike the French import, however, there's no awareness of its own absurdity, nor anything for the audience to care about in the slightest.

    New Times (L.A.) Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    The script is worse than slack, and despite its lurid premise, Bully doesn't have "Kids" tabloid immediacy.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    A riot of sleazy camera moves, bad acting, and maladroit profane dialogue.

    Slate Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    It's instructive to compare Bully with Jean-Pierre Ameris's "Bad Company," which tackles similar themes and manages to be explicit without stooping to cheap salaciousness. It's a genuinely disturbing film. Bully, in contrast, is merely disgusting.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    By turns turgid, embarrassing and plain off-putting.

    Variety Full Review
  • Loren King

    Nothing new to say, and, in the end, no real point to make.
