Empathy for the Devil
Jaded as we are, we thought wed seen everything, but a sympathetic story about a skinhead? Thats the premise of David Gows 2006 film Steel Toes, which binds a neo-Nazi accused of racially motivated murder (Andrew Walker) to his liberal, Jewish defense attorney (the ever-fabulous David Strathairn of Good Night, and Good Luck fame). Though the picture is a transparent set-up black heart versus white knight Gow imbues his cinematic construct with masterful shades of gray.
