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 Top 100 Movies! (100 movies items)

""So I guess this is where I tell you what I learned, my conclusion, right? Well, my conclusion is: Hate is baggage. Life's too short to be pissed off all the time. It's just not worth it. Derek says it's always good to end a paper with a quote. He says someone else has already said it best. So if you can't top it, steal from them and go out strong. So I picked a guy I thought you'd like. 'We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break"
