The Believer (2001)

Directed by
Henry Bean

Based on a true story, Ryan Gosling plays a hardcore American racist skinhead who, because of his intelligence, leads a gang dedicated to fighting the enemy: the supposed American-Jewish conspiracy for domination. But he's hiding a secret: he's Jewish-born, a brilliant scholar whose questioning of the tenets of his faith has left him angry and confused, turning against those who he thinks have a tragic history of their own making. Henry Bean's Sundance award-winning film caused controversy and received scrappy distribution but it is a compelling and thought-provoking drama about a difficult subject.
