About the Movie
Academy Award-nominee for his leading role, Edward Norton (Fight Club, The Illusionist) delivers a searing performance as Derek, a former neo-Nazi skinhead whose life was almost destroyed by his own hatred--and who now struggles to prevent his younger brother Danny (played by Edward Furlong Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Pecker) from following in his footsteps.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This jolting, superbly acted film will draw serious-minded upscale viewers interested in cutting-edge fare and the latest outstanding performance by Edward Norton.
Rotten: Though well-intentioned, turns out to be a simplistic and unconvincing look at a serious problem.
Fresh: A very good film with some dazzling moments and one truly outstanding performance!
Best movie of all times.
3 years ago, a couple of my friends told me how they had became, something called skinheads. I didnt really understand what it was all about, 2 months later I was exactly what you could call brainwash, I even shaved all my head and join a group of (Neo-Nazi) group. Then a good friend of mine saw how I changed, he told me "you need to watch this movie". So i did.. after 2 hours I realized that I didnt only saw the biggest masterpiece of movies, but also I was a completely different person. All those years wasted on hate when I realized like Danny Vinyeard says in the movie "We are not enemies, but friends... Life is to shot to be p**s off all the time".
The previews dont do this justice
This is one of those movies that will stick with you for a long time. The preview does not do this justice, it is so much better than it looks. Edward Norton is a fantastic actor as proven by this movie so early in his career. He is fantastic in all of his roles. Actually all of the actors in this movie were very good. Edward Furlong still is the squeaky kid, but even he is good in this movie. In my opinion i think this should be required watching for all the would be idiots out there. Hopefully seeing this movie will open peoples eyes as to the wrong path they are going down. This movie should be purchased not rented. If you do rent it you will be kicking yourself for not buying it.
Absolutely unbelieveable. Mindblowing. This movie was so unpredictable it kept me guessing all the way through it.
