There was so much controversy surrounded American History X and it’s become a film that everyone knows and appreciates—how do you feel about now that so much time has passed. 
TK: I gave everything I had to that movie. I put in my own money and went bankrupt as a result of that film for my own crazy actions. But my biggest upset was that I fell out with the lead actor. And it was my fault. It was a desire for myself and myself alone. I just felt so embarrassed and ashamed by that, and I kind of went mad. I couldn’t understand it. In a way I’m very proud of what we did, and why shouldn’t I be? It’s lasted and it’s still current. If it came out this week, it would be good. In fact, if it came out this week it would be better than it was then because it would not seem like a big budget movie. It was a 10-million-dollar film. It was a big-budget movie but was still made and built in a very gritty and realistic way. Movies weren’t like that then when it came out. So I’m very proud of it and it made me even more determined not to make the same mistakes.
