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

Movies i have watched in 2014 (76 movies items)

"10.03.2014 "You made the fat kid a little nervous. He thinks the joint messed with your mind." "It did." This is really one of those great movies that you only watch once. I have seen it before, but it's been so long i barely remembered anything but the key moments of it. It's a tough watch, but damn is it good. Definitely one of the best character studies i have seen on film. Edward Norton gives not just one of his best performances to date here as Derek Vinyard, but one of the best performa"

Film Journal - February 2014 (110 movies items)

"  Not the most easiest film, to watch. What really pulls it forward, is the performances, especially Edward Norton, Eddie Furlong, and Avery Brooks. Seriously, Edward Norton, should be have been nominated for his work, in the film. It's this, Fight Club, The Illusionist, and oddly enough, Death to Smoochy, that make him one of my favorite actors."
