I'm also pretty surprised that after "Homicide" (1991) got trashed by critics for being 'yet another film about a Jewish man hating Jews', that this film was so well praised.

Sure the acting i... read more

Not wholly believable

The poster quotes read "It will pin you to your seat", "Riveting", "Volatile". It's all three thanks to a brilliant Ryan Gosling performance. However, it's hard to get behind this film too much when the story-teller omits such important things like telling/showing us what initially drove Danny to turn his hatred on to his own people. I find it hard to believe that it was built on classroom debate ... read more

A very good movie

I know 'American History X' is a real classic but, in my opinion, this unrated/unseen gem which deals with the same subject is actually much better. Indeed, in contrary to 'American History X' which was filled with some rather obvious stereotypes, I thought the story was quite heartbreaking, fascinating and much more subtle. At the center, you have this main character who has so many layers and wa... read more

"17.5. Digiboxi Lähtökohtaisesti Ryan Gosling juutalaisena natsina vaikuttaa ihan mielenkiintoiselta idealta, mutta harmi vaan että tämä oli aika puuduttava elokuva."

“Inspired by Daniel Burros life, a jew, member of american nazi party and Ku klux klan. Could be see like the figure of self hated jew, and could be continued by the reading of Bernard Lazare, "the antisemitism, his history and his causes"” read more

"17.9. En elokuvan aiheeseen pureutuvia elokuvia ole pahemmin tullut katselleeksi, mutta tämä oli kokonaisuudessaan ihan toimiva tapaus. Ryan Gosling (lienee varsin tuttu myös mm. Drivesta) juutalaisena uusnatsina hoitaa roolinsa erittäin hienosti, vaikka muu hahmokaarti tuntuukin jäävän vähän ikävästi tämän roolisuorituksen taakse. Elokuva ei myöskään onneksi ihan rupea selittämään asioita kädestä pitäen, vaan antaa katsojalle aika paljon valtaa tehdä omia johtopäätöks"
