    Incredible movie. A real attempt to understand the beliefs and inner lives of people who embrace racism... and in particular an exploration of a jewish person who is s neo-nazi (story is loosely based on a Jewish person who joined the KKK in the 60s)

    This is a tense, gritty, disturbing film that stuck with me long after it ended.Excellent performances - in particular coming from Ryan Gosling and Billy Zane (kind of a surprise tbh).

    When a great actor is affirmed, I like to go back and look at his early work... and doing that, like in this case, it's easy to discover great films and parts that are the reason why he arrived where he arrived. This is no exception. Great performance, in a very good movie, with a strong final.

    Very well paced and acted. The Believer tackles an idea of identity crisis when a young Neo-Nazi confronts his heritage and begins to question which side of the fence he belongs. Interesting film that will hold your attention

    Storyline and the character are a bit off logic, doesnt give out a more concrere background for their beliefs or action. Though Ryan's potential for acting and liking for weird stories can be seen here.

    Less violent than I expected from the visual point of view, but surely not from the verbal and philosophical one.

    A very interesting story about a self-hating. A young man who was born and raised Jewish. Who in his early adulthood becomes a skinhead neo-Nazi. And despite his hatred for what he sees a Jewish weakness loved the Torah and Jewish tradition. A very complex person and subject.
