50DMC Day 48 – Movie scene that most makes you wince

14 Jul

More info on The 50 Day Movie Challenge here and here.

The sheer brutality on display by Edward Norton in American History X‘s well-known curb stomp scene never fails to make me gasp. It’s sudden, it’s vicious, and such a cruel act of violence that you wonder who would think to do such a thing. It’s fuelled by hatred, not mere revenge for the attempted theft. It’s made all the more impactful by Norton’s unapologetic face as he’s arrested after the fact.

    Really good one. I’m gonna be hard pressed now to think of a different one when I get to this question!

    I actually had some trouble thinking of one for this entry. I was tossing around a couple of different scenes, but wasn’t sure what to pick. Then this one sprung to mind, and I just went “well, duh”. Had to be it.
