Product Description

Acclaimed director Larry Clark delivers his most powerful film since KIDS. Marty (Brad Renfro) is a tormented surfer who relies on his longtime pal Bobby (Nick Stahl) for rides to the beach and South Florida bars despite vicious abuse. But when Bobby turns his unwanted attention to Marty's new girlfriend Lisa (Rachel Miner) and her best friend Ally (Bijou Phillips), Lisa decides Bobby's reign of terror must end. Assembling a crew of alienated suburban teens, she forms a deadly plan to get Bobby out of the way once and for all, turning friends into enemies and casual acquaintances into co-defendants in a murder that rocked America to its core.

I'd give it a 3.5 if I could. Great acting. Good pace. Interesting (and true) story. Adds up to a good movie. The acting deserves special mention, it was truly outstanding. While the movie's unique device is to tell the story dispassionately, I still balk at the lack of character development. The only social angle we get on our bored suburban teenage protagonists is that they have a lot of sex, use drugs, play video games, and just generally remain shallow and naive.
That said, the climax is alarming, incredibly raw, and definitely nerve-racking. Overall, Bully is a life-like and engrossing film, yet incomplete in its story, and should NOT be viewed by those who are easily offended or upset by bizarre, grotesque, or graphic violence, sexual imagery/dialogue in film.

Bully is a darkly profound story about irresponsible and thoughtless adolescents lacking adult supervision. The story revolves around Marty Puccio (Brad Renfro), who has been a friend of Bobby Kent (Nick Stahl) since childhood, but despite their friendship Bobby is constantly hitting and verbally abusing Marty. After a sexual encounter Marty and Lisa Connelly fall in love, but she also discovers the true nature of Bobby's bullying of Marty. This frustrates Lisa as she feels helpless and she discusses with Marty that he needs to do something about the situation, which leads the two of them into a plan of killing Bobby. Lisa asks for help from her troubled friends who after some persuasion agree to kill Bobby without any deeper consideration for the consequences or what they are getting themselves into. Clark leaves the audience with a bitter taste of the disturbed reality of some adolescents who live on the fringe where boundaries and guidance are nonexistent. However, it functions as a daunting wake-up call for those who have slumbered from their parental responsibilities or are unaware of what their adolescents might be up to. This story will give ground for parents to keep an interest in what their children and adolescents are doing on their free time as Clark provides a thorough illustration of what could go on within any parents home.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Have The Stomach and Guts for it Baby April 7 2004
By nina
Format:DVD
You cannot, and let me repeat, CANNOT watch a film like Bully if you're a punk and that goes for the females. Being a film loving-diva myself I found Bully at times repulsive, definitely disgusting and vulgar...but you know what? That's exactly what it was supposed to be(...). I am speaking of the character in the film and not the real person. You have to be careful when you review this film and talk about the characters because these were real people and this murder really happened. I read the book and can understand why Larry Clark changed things and omitted facts. Who can do a tragedy like this justice in only a few hours? But, that's all the studio was willing to give Clark. He uses his two hours to tame the audience and bring them into a world a lot of parents are afraid to go to. Why, because many of their so-called perfect children are already living in that world and they can't stand to admit it. Clark is always criticized for putting teens in awkward positions ( no pun intended ) but the actors were all of age and he reflected the movie from his perception of Bobby Kent's real murder.
This is a good film. A film anyone over twenty-one should see. A film that will open your eyes and even at times have you thinking murder is right. Finally, it's not until you see the culprits all polished up in their prisoner suits that you realize you shouldn't feel sorry for either one of them. Murder is murder and not even an abused sole such as the pathetic Marty Puccio ( I'm speaking of the film's character, not the person ) should be allowed to solve his own battles by bloodshed. Many people don't like these kinds of films. Why? Because it shows them that kids are bad in every place and time.

5.0 out of 5 stars as disturbing as it is captivating Feb. 10 2004
Format:DVD
should any of us be truly surprised that bully is a truly disturbing film when we consider the fact that larry clark directed it? if we step back a few years to the film kids, it should be blatantly obvious that bully would atleast have the same intensity & relentless fire. if the story of a group of friends & aquaintances doing away with one of their friends sounds somewhat familiar, it is. this film is actually based upon events that took place in florida during 1993. while the story has been given somewhat of an upgrade(considering we have kids with eminem posters on the wall), the story is very believable & almost hard to watch more often than not. in fact, this is a film you hate to admit that you like even though it's extremely powerful & nearly perfect in execution. parents be forewarned, there is a great deal of explicit sex & drugs in addition to some brutal violence which perhaps can be construed as objectionable in most family homes so be sure to keep this one away from the young ones. bully is a very strong, brutal film which explores the harsh relaty of being a teenager in today's sociey & the many pressures or troubles our youth is facing. larry clark's unflinching look at the hostility exhibited by these young people not only should challenege our minds but should give us food for thought as to why such terrible things happen to people who are so young. this may very well be one of the most gutsy, powerful films of any released in 1998 or 1999 & should not be missed. if you loved kids, then definately obtain your copy of bully today. bully is recommended very highly & i give it my highest rating of five stars.
