People Can Change

Can people change? The general consensus, if that person is Derek Vinyard, is no. Derek (Edward Norton) was a crazy-mean white supremacist who committed a brutal crime and wound up in prison.

After a traumatic term, he came out a changed man. This change is derived, including an eye-opening relationship between him and a black prisoner. He comes back to see that although his home... read more

"We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained we must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be by the better angels of our nature."

I doubt that the true profound impact of American History X can be accurately described using words. I had wanted to see this film fo... read more

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

My movie year 2014 (379 movies items)

"22.6. (DVD) Amerikkalaisten versio Leijonasydämestä. Kolmas katselukerta tai jotain sinnepäin. Ihan sympaattinen ja katseltava elokuva, mutta rautalangasta vääntäminen ja yltiöopettavainen kädestä taluttaminen eivät ole oikein oma juttuni. Kai sitä nyt asiat voi hiffata omassa letissä ilman punakynääkin. Aryan Brotherhoodia ei jostain syystä mainita nimeltä, olisivatko American Men poikimat murhat hieman säikäyttäneet Hollywoodia?"

"Katsottu: 19.4.2014 DVD:ltä Skinhead Derek Vinyard (Edward Norton) joutuu vankilaan tapettuaan kaksi mustaa miestä, jotka koittivat varastaa hänen autonsa. Kun Derek palaa kolmen vuoden tuomion jälkeen, Derek ei enää kannatakkaan samoja asioita kuin ennen ja koittaa vielä pelastaa pikkuveljensä Dannyn (Edward Furlong). American History X on ajatuksia herättävä ja koskettava elokuva, jossa Edward Norton (Fight Club) tekee yhden parhaista rooleistaan. Danny ja Derek"
