8. American History X (1998)
Director: Tony Kaye
Director Tony Kaye begged to have his name changed to "Humpty Dumpty" if not taken completely off this 1998 drama, in which Edward Norton plays a Neo-Nazi who sees the error of his racist ways after spending three years in the clink following the brutal murder of two youths he catches trying to steal his truck. He shoots the first kid and forces the second one to bite the curb—all with an eerily happy glint in his eyes.
