Bully by Larry Clark


i have been a fan of Larry Clark's films for a very long time and his photographs, like as previously stated Kids which i watched at 8 with my elder siblings, had such an impact on me that i can remember several scenes from it even to day 10 years later without even watching it again so yesterday i watched Bully. (his films are sooo very hard to find) it amazed me and was to me more horrifying then any standard horror movie which now days rely heavily on stereotypes & Cliches that horrors are just quite mundane. The story is of a guy who has a best friend who brutally bullies him and has done so for many years, he meets a girl who falls in love with him and See's the way he is being treated and hates it. So she plans to kill him, what amazed me is how cold these kids where but at the same time plotting and planning about killing as if it was like playing grand theft auto showed how naive they really where. It mirrors for me the epidemic that London is in right now with Kids killing Kids and thinking its nothing more then a game and not realising what they have done till it's to late.

I think the Lary Clark films are so haunting, it walks a fine line between realism and over pesimistic generalization of youth.

The characters and scenarios in Kids and Bully to some extent appear so believable, in the meantime it's like well, no. Being a teenager once sometime ago, it was never like this extreme...

Did you like Funny Games, or any of the Michael Haneke films?
