Yesterday finally watched the “American History” movie, mm well i have such a indefinite feeling about this movie, well first of all it is about the link between parental influence upon the conscience of their children. And considering the fact that it was the brain of a teenager it makes the situation even easier. In this case the authority for Danny was his brother Derek about whom he wrote his essay on the theme “American history X. Derek has become a part of a “sect” not by accident, it has happened because his father has always hated the afro american people. The best moment in the movie for me was when Derek and the black teenager student had same face expression, which was clearly showing despair due to all the wrong things that they have done, and that it all was real, and not some childish mistake.The nazy ideas have ruined Danny’s younger brother, and although he realized where this road will bring him, the end of the story was still indefinite, whether Derek will stop with the things he was doing in the past, or not. Mmm, i think this movie made me think about a variety of things. I definitely recommend it.

I think that Edward Norton is one of the best actors of our times, but in this movie he did even better than usually! He was able to change his hero completely, and to show all the emotions that he felt, it was so real! I was impressed by the moment of the arrest, the wild look that Derek has shown, how much anger and disgrace were in his eyes! and how much he changed during the time spent at the prison. This movie of course is a very difficult one, and it leaves a big imprint after watching it, but it is not a simple movie about skinheads, and not a psychological drama, it is a great movie that makes you think of the responsibility for the acts you make. How this acts later are reflected not only upon us, but on some other people as well. This movie is about being aware and feeling sorry for the things done. That is why i think every person should see it, not only a racist, but every single one! Hopefully it will teach people some kindness and better attitude towards each other. It is very important in this cruel world to be able to stay a person.

think this is one of the best roles performed by Edward Norton, in which his character is going through a break moment in his life, and in which he reconsiders his views about the world and life itself! It is a very cruel movie that has no compromise. I would not watch it again for anything honestly speaking as i am not ready to make trauma to my nerves. But there is a lesson that can be learned from it, even after watching it only one time. It is the fact it is not right to be mean to someone because of the skin color and evil nazy ideas, this way you can lose yourself and your essence of being a person. This movie is about responsibility towards the family, and of how important is to make decisions while using your head!
As i already said, Norton’s hero has changed his views completely in the first part of the movie he is cruel and dangerous, while in the second one he changed due to his brother he saw that the right way is the one without violence! I think that was a very right and important decision, i am proud of him!

Powerful and gripping from beginning to end. American History X provides a great performance from Edward Norton and a graphic tale involving the influences of society in the household and relationships. Very explicit, destructive and compelling, the film makes a strong mark that's as challenging as its direction.
