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 film that falls short on becoming great

I don't think I need to explain why this movie is good. It has a fantastic script on occasion, and the film as a whole is very emotionally appealing and it makes the viewer feel most of the things the characters in the film are feeling. At moments like that, it is filmmaking at it's finest. However when it starts rubbing those moments into your face it really starts to loose it's steam. There are ... read more

" Can someone, be truly redeemed? Or our deeds, good or bad, still apart of us regardless? Edward Norton, plays a Neo Nazi who once out of jail, seeks to make amends and prevent his younger brother from following the same dangerous path. It’s a hard, brutal, and difficult film to watch, but one that definitely should be seem."

" Notes: Sure, this movie has some qualities and, obviously, Edward Norton and Edward Furlong gave some really strong performances. But, unfortunately, the story didn't work so much for me. For example, I didn't buy that idea that a neo-nazi who really hates black people would suddenly completely switch of ideoloy while in prison (in fact, it usually the opposite, they become even worse when they go to jail) and it was the same thing with the little brother, they both kept changing their minds w"

“American History X es un film complicado, sus intenciones son obvias y la ejecución da otras impresiones a la que esperarías. Es un drama social acerca de tensiones raciales centrada en la vida de Skinheads neonazis. El mensaje que promueve se deja ver conociendo a estos grupos marginales, anti-racismo causado por la mala actitud de los protagonistas.

El film inicia marcando su carácter aparentemente adulto con una escena de sexo y un tiroteo, Edward Norton mamado y en calzoncillos con una esvástica en el pecho, la escena está en blanco y negro, elemento usado para marcar el pasado y diferenciarlo del inicio, quizás también con una carga simbólica, ya saben, el color de la piel. Pasamos al presente y el narrador, el hermano de Norton mamado es un mocoso problemático y m” read more
