They invite Zach to stay for dinner instead of Pete's missing friend. They soon find out that Zach is among other things a racist neo-Nazi, which brings up a potentially dangerous situation for Jewish Marc and black Luke. After some physical altercations and verbal threats, Marc ends up stabbing Zach dead out of what he considers self-defense.

Zachary Cody: Liberals, never taking a stand you'd be willing to...
Luke: to die for?
Zachary Cody: Nah. Boy, dying is easy. There is nothing heroic about dying. But if you can take a stand for something you'd be willing to kill for, that is something, something special

Contrived to the limits of believability
16 October 1999 | by ACR-3See all my reviews

What an amazingly contrived film this is! It makes a cheap attempt at intellectualism - proposing a controversial angle on liberal activists' non-action - but falls far short of developing this into something meaningful. The occassional image-manipulation of footage is a poor attempt at casting this as an "art" film - these flimsy cliches left me cold. The characters are clearly underdeveloped and out of touch with reality - as must the scriptwriter be! Choose this film only as a desperate last resort.
