    Have any of you seen this movie? WOW! It was a good movie.

    Yeah. Edward Norton is from where I'm from. Avery Brooks is da' man.

    It's a seriously disturbing movie -- especially the sidewalk bit. EW.

      It was very disturbing, but therein lies a great moral to the whole movie. Your friends aren't necessarily your friends unless you believe in what they believe in. If you turn on them, watch out...you're by yourself in a world that wants your a**!

      The thing is, what he was saying was true. Every bit of it. But, he took it to the extreme and hated everybody for something he couldn't change. I loved it when the teacher asked him if what he's done has made his life better. Makes ya think!

        It must not have been too good. I can't remember anything except Norton and his good acting.
        And that it was too short.

          I agree. Good movie. Sort of disturbing movie. Moral lesson. I've seen it a couple of times.

          "If you turn on them, watch out...you're by yourself in a world that wants your a**!"

          Quite literally in the case of this movie. [Eek!]

            I thought it was a great movie. For me it was the kind of movie you don't enjoy, but the content definatly makes you glad you watched it.

              We were shown the movie as part of a Cultural Diversity class. It was not the kind of movie I would have rented to watch but I did like the movie for its content & lesson.
