Did you see the movie American History X?

I didn't realize this movie was as old as 1998 but there's nothing else on tv as usual so I put it on. I have to say it's quite a shocking movie but when the guy quoted from the Statue of Liberty "Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses ...Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me..."....and said that the US should be taking care of their own poor, homeless and 'tempest tost' (actually he said 'tired' in the movie) I had to agree with him. Have you seen this movie? What were your thoughts about it? Did you like it or not? Did you get anything out of it?

Great movie. Hard to watch at times, but important I think with a great performance by Edward Norton (I believe he got an oscar nomination for the role). I've probably seen it 4 or 5 times, and everytime it never ceases to move and shock me. A real powder keg of a movie. I'll definatley be watching it in the near future again.

This movie was one that I found so amazingly informative and powerful. I was moved into a dimension I knew little if anything about. It is racism gone to the extremes of hate. It is the potency of hatred and how people suffer this wrath in all areas. I find it frightening that this degree of hatred is seething among us and the consquences are so dire and sad. American History X brought me to a new level of passion and awareness where racism and hatred are concerned.
