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

" For those who had seen it, I highly recommend a rewatch. Because when you're more familiar with the plot events, you can dig a little deeper with the small nuances, Than you can understand its brilliance, every scene and move has a thought behind IT. In my opinion, one of the best movies I had watched."

“I cannot recall having seen a film in which the two leading actors deliver such stunning performances as those given by the two Edwards - Norton and Furlong - in this powerful but often bleak and brutal movie. I simply cannot understand why neither seems to have won a major award for his portrayal. The film itself is not quite of the same quality as its leading performances. But it is nonetheless a frequently riveting and thought-provoking watch.

"American History X" tells the story of the problems of racism and neo-Nazism in modern-day Los Angeles. Derek Vinyard (Norton) is a young white working-class man who spends three years in prison for the manslaughter of two black men whom he killed violently when they tried to break into his car in the middle of the night. At that time, ” read more
