Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

American History X (1998)

Directed by Tony Kaye

Starring Edward Norton, Edward Furlong, Beverly D'Angelo, Jennifer Lien


An intriguing story that makes you think a bit harder about race relations in America, with some real tension. Norton’s performance is powerful, and he looks fantastic. Furlong is eerily good. Great acting all-around. Even all the supporting people were convincing, and you don’t see that very often these days.

Well-made. Nice mix of different film stocks and quick angles like U-Turn and Out of Sight.
