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

“American History X is not everyone's cup of tea, but it is one to watch because of Edward Norton's fantastic performance. Edward Norton plays Derek Vinyard a young man who's ideas change because of the death of his father, and he is influenced into the Neo Nazi belief system. Derek one night commits a horrific crime, and is sent to jail. On the inside his views are changed, and once outside he tries to protect his younger brother from the same people that influenced him. The whole movie is about can people change, and for me yes they can. This movie is more of a dramatic look at how people change, but the story is very good the acting both from Edward Norton and Edward Furlong as the young brother, as well as Beverly D'Angelo who plays the tormented mother did a fantastic job. Like I said ” read more

What have I been watching in 2012 (93 movies items)

"20.10. Blu-ray (Rewatch - ei aiempaa pisteytystä) Siitä on jo vaarmaan reilut viisi vuotta kun olen viimeksi tämän leffan katsonut. Muistan kyllä että pidin tästä jo silloin kovasti, mutta nyt tuntuu että olen rakastunut. Ihan loistava elokuva! Tuo Nortonin hahmo on vaan niin erinomainen että ei siitä voi olla tykkäämättä. Tätä leffaa voisi kehua vaikka millä adjektiiveilla, mutta eiköhän kaikki tiedä kuinka hyvä tämä on. Ja jos ette ole tätä katsonut, niin voin lämpi"
