Your're Such A Critic

THE QUESTION Maryland native Edward Norton is starring as a magician in The Illusionist. Which of his film roles is your favorite?

WHAT YOU SAY

I think Edward Norton's best role is a tie between Red Dragon and American History X. He shows that he can play both the protagonist and the antagonist in each of these movies.

KARYN WARFIELD, DUNDALK

American History X was a powerful story, and Norton showed a lot of range in his characterization of a white supremacist so full of hate. ... But the role I liked the best was in The Score with Robert DeNiro. Norton plays a skilled con man who pretends to be physically and mentally challenged in order to steal a valuable artifact.

BOB MADDOX, BALTIMORE

My favorite Edward Norton flick is American History X. It is a gritty but compelling movie, and the racial issues are painful to watch.

TERRY BARRICK, WESTMINSTER

My favorite role is the one that Edward Norton plays the racist Danny in American History X. This role that he plays in the first half of this movie is powerful. I like the fact that he redeems this character in the end.

LARRY SPEED, BALTIMORE

THE NEXT QUESTION Nicolas Cage stars in World Trade Center and The Wicker Man, a coming release. What are your favorite Cage movies?
