DIRECTOR: LARRY CLARK
Introduced by Larry Clark at the 8:30pm screening on Saturday, August 25.
“Nature sucks!” Where most movies about youth culture lag behind the ever-changing looks and sounds of the times, Bully is a perfect, even prescient portrait of the turn-of-the-millennium Eminem Moment, of youth disaffection and moral rot in sunny, swampy suburban South Florida. Using the basic material of the True Crime tale of Bobby Kent, a rich kid and petty tyrant in his small social circle, Clark tells a blackly-funny tale of violent comeuppance, with Brad Renfro, Bijou Phillips, Michael Pitt, and Kids’ Leo Fitzpatrick as wannabe gangsters putting together a remarkably clumsy murder conspiracy.
Screening as a part of our Larry Clark series.
