Will this movie go down in history as being great? I think it will! Edward Norton was really awesome in this drama about race and hatred. Norton had to do a lot of uncomfortable scenes and had to put a big tattoo of a swastika on his chest. I’m sure that wasn’t a comfortable thing to see in his dressing room mirror. Edward Furlong was just as whiny as he was in Terminator 2, he was just a lot more racist. The theme of this movie hits you hard and I feel it’s not overly preachy. It’s just a very well made movie with some excellent writing and direction. I was happy to see Avery Brooks in this, as I think he has one of the best voices in the entertainment industry. The ending of this film is shocking and disturbing. A solid film that must be seen.
