American History X is directed by Tony Kaye, and it stars Edward Norton and Edward Furlong in a drama film about 2 brothers where one is already a neo-Nazi who got out of prison, and another who is turning into one and is walking in his brother's footsteps. I honestly didn't get to see the original version as I got the edited one in high school, so I'm not gonna see about how brutal it was. Even so for what I watch of it, American History X is a fantastic film that really did a good job of making me feel sorry for a neo-Nazi. Edward Norton give a fantastic performance that I'm glad that he got nominated, even though I wished that he was the winner. Edward Furlong does a great job too as a kid actor, and I like the characters, even if they are complete jerks in this. The writing by David McKenna is well written, and even if it was edited, there are some brutal moments in this still that are a bit hard to watch. I did like that it's about two brothers as I got to know a lot about them two, especially with their conversations as they have good chemistry as brothers. If I get to watch it American History X again but the original version this time, I'll definitely watch it again.
