  1. Ann Burden's rating of the film Bully

  2. Chichago_'s rating of the film Bully

    I hope those kids who bullied the victims in this documentary will feel ashamed of what they have done.

  3. lautrededor's rating of the film Bully

    Small bullies in schools, big bullies on the world stage.

  4. mpho3's rating of the film Bully

    I wish this had been made so differently: interviews w/ the bullied, the bullies, and the bullies' parents. More about social media. Not having left out the details of Tyler Long's mental health battles. W/out details most of the bullying in Bully doesn't seem so bad (aside from Alex's story). Hirsch missed the opportunity to make those who minimize the issue, realize that "kids will be kids" doesn't fly. 3.5 stars

  5. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Bully

    To me, there is and will be only one "Bully": came out in 2006, made by Rockstar Games, with original music by Shawn Lee.

  7. Junda Mane's rating of the film Bully

    An important documentary that's only missing the perspective of the bullies themselves. Still a fine piece with a strong message.

  8. Norman1706's rating of the film Bully

    a heartbreaking documentary about bullying.

  9. pieomy's rating of the film Bully

    Heartbreaking. Good documentary.

  10. Matt Richards's rating of the film Bully

    An affecting look at the catastrophe of bullying within the American school system. It's deeply frustrating to watch the sheer helplessness these kids live what should be the best time of their lives and the complete ineptitude of the people who are supposed to be their care-givers. Instead of offering hard solutions it posits itself as a call to action remaining focussed on the here and now. Good stuff! 4 stars

  11. House 0f Leaves's rating of the film Bully

    If you have children you need to watch this. I'm thinking parents should be held criminally liable for their children's bullying. Can't trust the inept school systems, and the kids themselves are just a product of their parents. God damn.

  12. Kyle Lewis's rating of the film Bully

    a flawed doc, that still deeply affected me. Their is a laundry list of problems, but the film still reduced me to tears. Tony Kaye should take a crack at this subject.

  13. LifeofFiction's rating of the film Bully

    For all intensive purposes, this is a great documentary. However, I think it could've used much less staging and explored more of the social issues surrounding this horrible reality.

  14. Andre Rehal's rating of the film Bully

    A micro study of a macro issue. It hit the right emotional beats choosing to focus on the victims of bullying and their turmoil but I thought it could have used a little examination of the bully's themselves.

  15. Bullitt's rating of the film Bully

    A structurally weak documentary with a strong message. Goddammit, hit your focus marks, literally and figuratively!

  16. Francisco Pedro's rating of the film Bully

    Emotionally manipulative and one-sided documentary that thinks it can provide simple answers to a very complex problem. Despite being touched by several of the stories presented, the victims deserved better.

  17. Juan Barquin's rating of the film Bully

    This was an absolute mess both in terms of filmmaking and exploring the subject at hand. A few decent scenes are featured, but barely any time was dedicated to actually looking into the problem of bullying (or talking to any bullies???) and at least five minutes of this were simply landscape shots or kids staring off into the distance. Let's not even talk about the out of focus camera work and staged sequences.

  18. HEDONIST's rating of the film Bully

    Quite disappointing unfortunately -- an interesting concept nevertheless... however, poor execution by Hirsch. Kumbaya bullshit.
