American History X

4/5 stars

This is a very difficult movie to watch. A former neo-Nazi (Derek; Edward Norton), fresh out of prison, endeavors to keep his brother from following in his foot steps. Black and white flash backs tell the story of Derek’s seemingly inevitable path to jail for murdering two black men who were prowling around his house. We also see the signs of the same path being followed by Danny (Edward Furlong), Derek’s brother.

While the content may be hard to watch, this is definitely a worthwhile, and important, film.
