Bully (2001) : 4/5 stars
Out of the 2 Larry Clark films I’ve seen so far (ken park being the other), Bully is the least horrifying, the least shocking, and the lesser evil! See Nick Stahl in full bully-glory. See Brad Renfro as the bullied friend. See Bijou Philips as the teenage slut, and my favorite, Michael Pitt as a pothead! It’s a true story, this one is, about teenagers who plot to murder their friend Bobby Kent (Stahl) who’s been too much of a bully for them. It’s frightening how the group of teenagers casually plot Bobby Kent’s murder (-shows gun- “What the fuck’s that for??” “to kill bobby kent!” “oh, yeah.”) but what proves more frightening is the psychologically and emotionally disturbed Bobby Kent , who we don’t know for sure is aware of his monstrosity. Watch this movie for an instant downer. It’s depressing at the end with the teenagers’ prison sentences.
