"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.

My movie year 2014 (477 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?"
