Moving and poignant. Edward Norton's best performance. The ending is contradictory but interesting and shocking in its own right.

Very good film. Didn't blow me away like it has a lot of people but there's not a huge amount to fault here. The story with Derek and the black dude he's washing the sheets with felt a little cheesy, like something out of the Green Mile or The Shawshank Redemption, but overall the message was strong and delivered in a very stylish manner.

It's a movie that's unpleasant to watch due to its content, but amazingly good. It shows you snippets of the worst in humanity and a slighter of hope. Shame that idiots like them still exist, but don't experience redemption like Derek.
