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

Amazing...

"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.

“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
