Two things hold the interest: Norton's astounding performance, and a feeling for the male reality of reactionary working class environments.

The film is always interesting and sometimes compelling, and it contains more actual provocative thought than any American film on race since Do the Right Thing.

This journey to unpleasantville is too often manipulative and strains to maintain tension.

This is a terrifying look at the humanity implicit in hatred. Flawed, but fascinating.
