American History X

  • You're not wearing a bra!

After serving a three-year prison sentence for the murder of a black youth, a reformed Nazi skinhead comes home to find his younger brother following in the same dead-end footsteps. As he works to save his brother and clean up the mess he left behind, old friends and enemies return to throw up their respective roadblocks. The film is an examination of racisism and bigotry, and is an important but not easy film.

Visitor Comments
Nuno Rosa: Wonderful movie.

Zahid Khan: The movie keeps you on the edge of the seat with a mixture of action, suspense, comedy and tear jerking moments. Definately lets the mind wonder.

Robert Haynes: Stunning stunning film - not in the least bit judgemental or finger waving in any way - which given the subject matter is a refreshing change. How this film wasn't nominated for best picture above the totally fluffy Shakespeare in Love - god knows! Too politically incorrect for the sacharrine members of the Academy. See it now - but be warned it's hard stuff.

Clark Allison: This is one excellent film. I found some parts extremely violent but I still thought it was excellent and I'm going to buy it!

Hollie Case: This movie is like an emotional rollercoaster you hate the characters actions, yet find yourself liking the characters. There are a lot of hidden messages that go along with the movie. And the ending leaves your stomache in knots.

Kim Denker: This was such a great movie. It shows the true, sick determination of nazi-skinheads as well as all racist groups. This film has such an amazing story and it is definitely one of the best I've ever seen, but be warned that some parts aren't so pleasant. Still an excellent movie.

Abbey Draper: Best movie I have EVER seen!!

Jamie Harding: Excellent!
