101 in 1001: Watch American History X

T and I watched four movies in the last weekend. And oh, this was a good ‘un. First off, it has Edward Norton and quite frankly that is enough reason to watch any movie. I am not ashamed of my unabashed love for him.

The movie itself is eye opening and graphic and completely enthralling. Norton’s journey through neo-nazism is horrifying and shocking and captivating. It is not a film for the lighthearted or for anyone looking for an easy watch. This questions values, morals, race and judgement. It explores the influence of attitudes and beliefs on out children. It shows the change that can come over a human being.

Oh, it’s a good ‘un.
