Bully

Having successfully fended off the dreaded R rating (itself a result of the MPAA's priggishness and Harvey Weinstein's need for attention), this timely documentary about school yard bullying arrives on a wave of hype. The film is a sincere attempt to address the streak of cruelty firmly embedded in our society. It's not particularly elucidative (we learn little about the subjects and even less about their tormentors), but it's still essential viewing for today's school children. 99 minutes PG-13.
