Need another reason to believe that rising star Ryan Gosling has the goods? Then check out this heavy thinker (based on true events) about an Orthodox Jew who becomes a neo-Nazi. Pitting faith against intellect, Gosling is brilliant as the conflicted believer whose crisis of faith bubbles into resentment for his own Judaism. Taking advantage of the situation is Titanic's Billy Zane, a fascist who recruits Gosling to help terrorize Jews and incite a revolution against America.
Unlike the tidier American History X, Believer is a messy, tough trip that's even more frightening because it's all too real.
