American History x

The last two classes we have watched the movie “American History X”. This movie made a huge impression on me and made me reflect more about the views and feelings most Americans must have. I have never seen a movie like this before. Very short, the movie was about two brothers who both had been sucked into the white supremacist world. I felt the movie really showed how social differences, immigration and misunderstandings as well as anger can have enormous consequences for a community.

This movie, should in my opinion, be watched by everyone especially in America. I believe it will give room for reflection about their own lives as well as the lives of others. I had never heard about this movie until it was introduced to us in class. It may show of my lack of knowledge about important cultural movies, however I do not think I am alone. If a majority of the citizens in America was made aware of its existence and watched this movie I believe, and hope, that they would look very different on their own culture and attitudes.
