"I saw confusion, and I saw a front that said, in his eyes, 'don't mess with me, I've been tampered with enough.' I can't call the kid innocent ... but I can tell you the boy got a bit more than he bargained for." That's Brad Renfro describing his reaction to a mug shot of Marty Puccio, whom he portrays in "Bully," a new film directed by Larry Clark that opens Friday in Los Angeles. In 1993, Puccio, then 16, stabbed and killed his best friend, Bobby Kent. Puccio is serving a life sentence.

In "Bully," photographer-turned-filmmaker Larry Clark brings alive so compellingly the aimless, brutal existence of a group of Florida teenagers that it becomes too easy to accept the film's gratuitous and distracting nudity and fairly graphic sex as part of a telling-it-like-it-is honesty. Upon reflection, however, it becomes disturbingly clear that Clark is himself exploiting his young people, ogling their unblemished bodies.

POP/ROCK Rosa Red: Latin American songwriter Robi Rosa, who co-wrote and produced the Ricky Martin hit "Livin' La Vida Loca," is upset that his song "The Cup of Life/La Copa de la Vida" was used at last week's Republican National Convention in what he views as an attempt to attract Latino voters.
