Reviews

80
Chicago Reader - Lisa Alspector
The tone -- a combination of earnestness and gallows humor -- is strangely appropriate.
80
Newsweek - David Ansen
Ferocious and sometimes creepily funny, Bully is a raunchy suburban "Crime and Punishment."
63
Boston Globe - Unnamed
Nothing new to say, and, in the end, no real point to make.
50
Philadelphia Inquirer - 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.
50
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - Sean Axmaker
It feels like a peek into the closet of a pedophile and it's genuinely discomforting.

Bully (2001)



After finding himself at the constant abuse of his best friend Bobby, Marty has become fed up with his friend's twisted ways. His girlfriend, a victim of Bobby's often cruel ways, couldn't agree more and they strategize murdering Bobby.
