Fridge: American History X

Fridge Brilliance

  • This is mostly in the script and cut from the movie. Danny is an impressionable kid who follows Derek's lead. Henry, the black kid who Danny has a conflict with at school, was pressured into it by his big brother (who he seems to idolize). He's in the exact same position as Danny.

Fridge Horror

  • The entire cycle of hatred and violence in Derek's life was started when his hardworking albeit bigoted father was murdered by a black man while doing his job. Looking at the circumstances of Danny's death, what's stopping Derek from snapping right back into the mindset that made him such a notorious monster in the first place? It puts a whole new spin on Sweeney's question of "Has anything you've done made your life better?"
