Just a note...

I watched this because I had heard that it was better then "American History X"... which it is not and I'm rather surprised that the two films could be compared to each other.

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

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"

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

"16.4, Netflix Mielenkiintoinen elokuva Ryan Goslingin esittämästä nuorukaisesta, joka juutalaisen kasvatuksen saaneena mutta natsi-aatetta ihannoivana joutuu henkilökohtaiseen aatteiden ristituleen. Elokuva pyörii periaatteessa täysin Goslingin suorituksen varassa, ja ihan hyvä niinkin, sillä oikeastaan kaikki muu kuin Goslingin hahmo tuntuu turhalta. Takauma(?)kohtauksien hidastukset olivat kamalia ja muutenkin elokuva on visuaalisilta sekä kerronnallisilta arvoiltaan heikohkoa, mutta"

"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"

"7.2 Nuoren miehen kamppailu oman identiteettinsä löytämiseksi, mutta kummalta puolelta? Tarina pyörii nuoren juutalaisen uusnatsin ympärillä, joka on sitä mieltä, että ihmisen perusluonne on vihata juutalaisia, mutta joutuu samalla kamppailemaan oman juutalaistaustansa kanssa. Näistä lähtökohdista on saatu hyvin kysymyksiä herättävä elokuva, joka ei tarjoa suoria vastauksia, vaan antaa katsojalle vallan. Danny antaa itsestään kuvan uhmakkaana fiksuna neonazina, mutta pinnan "

A very good movie

“I know that 'American History X' is a real classic but, in my opinion, this unrated/unseen gem which deals with a similar subject is actually much better. Indeed, in contrary to 'American History X' which was filled with some rather obvious stereotypes, I thought that the story was quite heartbreaking, fascinating and much more subtle. At the center, you have this main character who has so many layers and who was so complex, it was quite spellbinding to behold. Indeed, on one hand, he seems pretty despicable but on the other hand, you can't help feeling sorry for him. In my opinion, it is a great study about the mind of a messed up boy who got really lost and tries to find some redemption in some really f*cked up way. This movie featured the breakthrough performance by one of the most tale” read more
