American History X

Edward Norton is an ex-skinhead leader that wants to stop his brother from following his footsteps. The film is quite strong although I have to admit that all the black characters lack depth. Though I don`t mean to tell that the movie has a racist message, of course it doesn`t. The basketball scene is lame, but nevermind that. At one stage it seemed to me that the film might have a compelety idiotic happy ending, but it didn`t, and that`s really good (not that the actual ending was that great but at least it didn`t smell likek saccharine).
