American History X (1998)
I was skeptical before watching this film because of the delicate material, that it deals with. However after seeing this film, it one of the best films I have ever seen. The story of racists white man(Norton) who after a stint in prision, renouces his racist ways and pro-nazi attitude is stunning. It is wonderfully direct with the flashback technique working wonders and strong performances by the cast. what elevates this film to a whole new level though is the performance of Edward Norton. He recieved a Academy award nomination and it is richly deserved. Almost certainly the best performance of his carear, although in his latest film, 25th hr he also turns in a brillant performnce.
There are vilolent themes, sex scenes, course language and adult themes, so it may not be for everyone. But it is a brilliant film that should be viewed by anyone who appreciates good film.
