The first time when Derek was stacking the sheets, he threw a stack of sheets onto the shelf behind him, where they lay all disorganized. In the next few seconds, the sheets that had been thrown keep changing positions, and the piles of sheets on the table change positions between shots. See more »

Powerful portrayal of Neo-Nazi movement in America. Told in series of flashbacks. Flawless acting by Edward Norton. Does its best to make the point that no one is ever right aand no one is ever wrong. I have a friend who was a Nazi and a racist. But upon walking out of the theater after this movie he hung his head in shame. This is why the film industry began.
