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

“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.
