'American History X': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Controversial Edward Norton Movie

29 October 2013 7:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's been 15 years since the release of "American History X" (on October 30, 1998), and to this day, the movie stands as a riveting and brutal drama about the persistence of white-supremacist racism in America. It cemented Edward Norton's reputation as the premier Method actor of his generation, and it included at least one scene (the infamous curb-stomp sequence) that's been copied by everyone from "The Sopranos" to "Family Guy."

Yet to this day, many viewers still don't know the often even more dramatic story that went on behind the scenes of the film, in which first-time feature director Tony Kaye fought with Norton and distributor New Line over the final cut of the film. He ultimately filed a $200 million lawsuit because he preferred to be credited as Humpty Dumpty rather than allow the studio's cut to be released under his name. Read on to learn more about Kaye's epic and »

Detachment Blu-ray Review

5 February 2013 8:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It’s weird seeing a follow-up from a director who has made such a classic film yet nothing since. It’s even more weird that the film, American History X, isn’t something he’s proud of and tried to change his name to Humpty Dumpty on it. Odd, still, that Detachment, the new film from Tony Kaye, went pretty much unnoticed after festivals and went, instead, released to On Demand services and disappointing considering the talent within the film alone and the fact that it is, quite frankly, pretty brilliant. A film so packed with acting talent, melodramatic story, great music and hit-and-miss direction means that you have something of a separation with the audiences.

Adrien Brody’s Henry is a substitute teacher who travels from school to school filling the blank wherever needed for a month or so. When he goes to a pretty deplorable school that has »

Win: Detachment On DVD, We Have 2 Copies To Give Away

10 January 2013 4:51 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

From the producer of The Hurt Locker and the director of American History X comes Detachment, a uniquely compelling and intelligent drama available on Blu-ray & DVD from 28th January 2013, courtesy of Koch Media. We have two copies to give away to our readers.

In director Tony Kaye’s Detachment, Academy Award winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist, Midnight in Paris) stars as Henry Barthes, an educator with a true talent to connect with his students. Yet Henry has chosen to bury his gift. By spending his days as a substitute teacher, he avoids any emotional connections by never staying anywhere long enough to form an attachment to either students or colleagues. When a new assignment places him at a public school where a frustrated, burned-out administration has created an apathetic student body, Henry soon becomes a role model to the disaffected youth. In finding an unlikely emotional connection to the students, »
