  • My problem is that the lack of narrative structure deprives the film of any suspense, and without suspense the film eventually collapses from its own heat like a soufflé that has been in the oven just a few minutes too long. show more

  • 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. show more

    At once chilling and searing, a graphic account of dysfunctional youth at their worst. If you want to see betrayal, mayhem and murder, do not miss this.
