Based on the 2012 MSNBC documentary, Bryon Widner was one of the FBI's most sought after white supremacists. Covered in racist tattoos from head to toe that he earned performing hate crimes, he conducts a destructive life and is headed down the path of no return. When he meets Julie and her three young daughters from previous relationships, the responsibilities of fatherhood give him the desire to leave the movement behind. He endures death threats and harassment from his old gang while attempting to turn his life around. With the help of the FBI and SPLC, he undergoes 25 brutal tattoo removal surgeries in exchange for decoding the tattoos covering his body, which culminates in the arrest and conviction of his former gang.Written by
The first time Jamie Bell spoke to Bryon Widner about playing him in the film was on Aug. 12, 2017, the day the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville was taking place. Bell says that Widner had to cut the phone conversation short because he wanted to make sure that Daryle Lamont Jenkins was okay. As depicted in the documentary Alt-Right: Age of Rage (2018), Jenkins was one of the counter protesters in Charlottesville that day. See more »

A solid B-grade biopic by a newb writer, director and producer.
User freqeteq's review is on point, especially the fake 10's and idiotic 1's.
This is a solid B-grade biopic by newb writer, director and producer Guy Nattiv (only his 4th full length feature film, priors all short films).
His camera work and directing his scenes and cast was excellent, and all actors were outstanding, especially Jamie Bell.
The cinematography was great and the score on point. A few plot issues, and the pacing could've been better/faster, or some scenes edited down, as the 2 hour runtime felt much longer. But for a newb writer/director mainly experienced in short films, these technical issues can be easily forgiven.
An enjoyable biopic, and well deserving of an honest 8/10 from me.
