American History X , the moody drama about a pair of troubled brothers caught up in the Neo-Nazi skinhead movement, took an honest look at the underbelly of white supremacist counterculture in America, in many ways, presaging the state of the country 20 years after its release. Released in 1998, a year before Fight Club, American History X earned Edward Norton an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. Here we look at 10 things you never knew about American History X.

American History X was partially inspired by a true story.

He is now a writer and lecturer.</p><p><h2>Joaquin Phoenix turned down the lead role.</h2></p><p><figure><img src=Die Hard Supercut Video Ends the Christmas Movie Debate Forever

15 Surprising Facts About American History X

americanhistoryx

Posted by IFC on

  • Behind-the-scenes drama wasn’t enough to derail Tony Kaye and Edward Norton’s 1998 gritty crime drama, which went on to win critical acclaim and a rampant fanbase. Here are 15 things about the making of the controversial film that might surprise you.

    1. IT’S DIRECTOR TONY KAYE’S DEBUT FILM.

    Kaye, who had cut his chops directing music videos and art installations in the 1990s, made the jump to directing feature films with American History X. The movie is also screenwriter David McKenna’s debut.


    2. KAYE TRIED TO DISOWN THE FILM.

    Kaye was unsatisfied with the final cut of the movie, so he tried to use Alan Smithee, the official pseudonym (coined in 1969 and discontinued in 2000) for directors looking to disown their projects, in the credits. The Director’s Guild of America blocked the effort, however, because DGA guidelines stipulated that directors could only use the Smithee pseudonym if they agreed not to publicly disparage the film, something the overly vocal Kaye had already done.


    3. IT WAS PARTLY BASED ON THE LIFE OF REFORMED SKINHEAD FRANK MEEINK.

    Meeink, who served three years in prison for charges related to white supremacist beliefs, is now an accomplished anti-skinhead author and lecturer.


    4. JOAQUIN PHOENIX TURNED DOWN THE LEAD ROLE OF DEREK VINYARD.

    He thought the film’s subject matter was too intense.


    5. NORTON WAS ALLEGEDLY CAST WITHOUT KAYE’S APPROVAL.

    Norton stepped in when Phoenix passed on the project—reportedly against Tony Kaye’s wishes. Kaye wanted to find another actor, but let Norton keep the part because Kaye simply couldn’t find anyone better prior to the start of shooting.


    6. TO PLAY DEREK, NORTON HAD TO BULK UP AND SHAVE HIS HEAD.

    The normally slight actor gained 25 pounds of muscle for the role.


    7. NORTON WAS NOMINATED FOR THE BEST ACTOR OSCAR FOR HIS PERFORMANCE.

    Roberto Benigni took home the trophy for Life is Beautiful.


    8. NORTON ALLEGEDLY TOOK A PAY CUT TO APPEAR IN THE MOVIE.

    Reports claim he received one-fifth his usual $1 million-per-movie fee.


    9. NORTON TURNED DOWN A ROLE IN SAVING PRIVATE RYAN FOR AMERICAN HISTORY X.

    He would have played Private Ryan (Matt Damon got the part instead).


    10. THE DINER DANNY AND DEREK GO TO IS A FAMOUS HOLLYWOOD LOCATION.

    While it closed in 2000, Johnie’s Coffee Shop is immortalized in movies like The Big Lebowski and Reservoir Dogs.


    11. EDWARD NORTON HELPED WITH THE FILM’S FINAL CUT.

    While Kaye was editing the film (which took more than a year), Norton and the movie’s studio, New Line Cinema, would send him story notes. And after two of Kaye’s submitted cuts proved unsatisfactory, Norton stepped in to provide his own version of the movie, which is 20 minutes longer than Kaye’s.


    12. OUTRAGED OVER NORTON’S CUT, KAYE CANCELED THE FILM’S PREMIERE.

    Kaye heard that the unauthorized cut of the movie was accepted at the Toronto Film Festival while he was shooting a commercial in Germany. The scorned director immediately boarded a plane to Toronto and had organizers pull the movie from the festival’s lineup. When it came time for the film’s wide release, he filed a $200 million lawsuit to legally have his name changed to Humpty Dumpty in the credits as his way of protesting of the unapproved cut. He also took out 40 pull-page ads in trade papers denouncing the movie.


    13. KAYE BROUGHT SOME BACKUP TO HIS NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE FILM STUDIO.

    The studio allegedly called a meeting to hash things out with the distraught director, who showed up with a rabbi, a priest, and a monk to try to smooth things over. Kaye’s stunt didn’t work, and the working relationship remains sour.


    14. KAYE SAW THE MOVIE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2007.

    Nine years after the film’s controversial release, Kaye agreed to introduce and sit in on a free screening of American History X at a YWCA in Wilmington, North Carolina.


    15. KAYE HAS CREATED A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE FILM’S CONTROVERSY.

    The doc, entitled Humpty Dumpy, was never released.

    The Best Of The Last

    Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

    Posted by Ben Cochran on

  • The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

    But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

    Couples Dinner

    It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

    Cancel it!

    A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

    Forgotten America

    This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

    Wedding Planners

    The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

    Disaster Hut

    It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

    Your Portlandia Personality Test

    The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

    Posted by Ben Cochran on

  • Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

    Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

    Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

    Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

    Lane 33: Twins

    You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

    Lane 27: Broken Windows

    Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

    Lane 69: Filthy Cars

    You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

    Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

    It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

    Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here . And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
