Is your copy the Theatrical Version/Release?

To validate this, try checking the back of the DVD case and at the upper left side of it if its the unrated or theatrical release labeled.

This movie disturbed the shit out of me. And just when I thought that Kids would be the end all.

Still one of the most numbing experiences I've had watching a film in awhile....Larry Clark is a twisted being, but it's impossible not to watch anything he does....

The theatrical release is the unrated version. There was only one version relased.

Ken Park takes the Larry Clark twistedness to another level. The girl basically slobs the other actor's knob in that orgy scene. Will this ever see a region 1 release?

Anyone see the pics of Brad Renfro getting busted for buying heroin on the streets of L.A. last week? What a look of shock on his face. I think the police must have taken the photos as they first approached the suspects for arrest!

Bully is one of those films that I have seen several times and I really want to like, but I thought that it wasn't very good. I read the book, which was a little better. Check out the special feature of the interviews with the actors saying how they got cast in the movie. It's kinda creepy. I'm glad someone mentioned Ken Park. Who knows if we'll ever see that one in R1, uncensored. My Russian copy will suffice. Larry seems to really love naked young people. Perhaps he'll move onto hardcore next.

While I like this movie I know it's not fantastic. It's a tad bit too long and some of the information isnt' true. Lots of the kids are either out of jail.

What I like about this movie is the atmosphere. It really feels like you're watching the youth of today. Doesn't feel like it's some 40 year old directing and you say "oh that never happens" Sure some things are far fetched, i was never a bad kid but it's all believable.

I love the music he uses for his films. Good hip hop and techno. That Fatboy Slim when they're in court is just *wow* to me. I love it.
