Comment American History Xthe moody drama about a pair of troubled brothers caught up in the Neo-Nazi skinhead movement, took an honest look at the underbelly of white supremacist counterculture in America, in many ways, presaging the state of the country 20 years after its release.
For years a successful commercials and video director, Kaye, who also served as his own cinematographer, indisputably knows how to stage dramatic action to potent visceral effect, and only occasionally goes too far and overstates his case. How can we let this happen?
