Re: whatever happened to the rumored American History X SE?
In the doc "This Film is Not Yet Rated" Tony Kaye is interviewed about American History X (about it's subject matter I believe) and I thought he said the final film worked better than what he originally had in mind. He didn't seem angry about it.
I always thought his main beef was with Edward Norton (wasn't he the one who wanted to reedit it?).
I bought him going to camp. I bought him saving Christmas. I bought him going to jail. I even bought him fighting trolls. But I don't buy that Ernest ever had sex. - Nesbit
