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.

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

"1.1. Tällainen aloitus uudelle vuodelle. Krapula alkoi vihdoin kääntyä voiton puolelle. Tulipa katseltua elokuva pitkästä aikaa ihan rehellisesti TELKKARISTA. Mainoskatkot ja kaikki. Viime vuos oli mun osalta aika hiljainen leffojen kanssa. Katotaan josko nyt ehtisi enemmän."

"22.2.2016 Uusintakatselua jälleen - ainakin mielestäni olen tämän aiemminkin nähnyt. En ole siitä tosin täysin varma. Tosi asia on kuitenkin, että jutsku päättää ryhtyä natsiksi, joka herättää paljon sisäisiä ristiriitoja ja tämä teema saa pohtimaan, mitkä olivatkaan ne Aatun sukujuuret. Hyvä leffa, mutta ei mulla oikeasti ole mitään fiksua sanottavaa."
