A superb film, definitely one of my favourites of all time. Norton's character is portrayed outstandingly and it is amazing to see just how much muscle mass he has managed to put on just for this role! Seeing the sort of neighbourhood his character grows up in and how his behaviour impacts on the rest of his family after the death of his father is really quite moving. You feel a real sense of gloo... read more

30 From 98: My Favorite Films From 1998 (30 movies items)

"My favorite of Ed Norton's performances in his career so far. The only thing that kept this movie from making it to the number one spot on this particular list is that while the story did a fair job of getting it's intention through, is still came off a bit clunky & broken in some parts (which may due to the editing that got this film into so much trouble with it's director).
