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.

Wall Street Journal
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. Full Review

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. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
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. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
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. Full Review

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