Excellent - shocking at time but great acting and Edward Norton proved to me in this movie that he can fng act. I am not a racist ************* teach people you are not as great as you think -- we are all alike in some way. Racism and hate is stupid.

This movie is really good! I wouldn'******* it if you are against racism (which I am, by the way, and it was hard to watch at sometimes), but it is a moving, jolting movie. The acting was at times cardboard, but not a lot. That's the only reason why I gave it a 4.
