Bullied is a powerful documentary that explores bully culture in the United States, sharing instances of the phenomenon by way of chilling video footage and gut-wrenching interviews with victims and their families. The stories of children who take their own lives rather than face another day of being destroyed physically, socially, mentally and spiritually are beyond simply “moving.” They cause your heart to ache. This is not a journey for the squeamish. But Thomas Keith did not just string together a series of graphic cellphone videos director in order to shock and to mortify. The film balances graphic content with a healthy dose of the behavioral science behind the bully mindset, and offers plausible courses of action for treating the victims, as well as the victimizers. From a production standpoint, the film is nicely paced and intelligently structured, showing Keith’s strength both as an educator and a storyteller. - Greg Gerard, Beloit International Film Festival
