- Inkpot interview with Adrian Tan.
American History X is indeed potent in its message on racism. Perhaps the best thing in this movie is how it does not preach the racism message but rather focus on the development of its characters and allow then the message to be willingly digested, regardless of who's watching.
- Jack Choo, Inkpot review of American History X.
"At its heart, TEENAGE TEXTBOOK is a nice film... not very special or really memorable because it suffers from some weaknesses, but I liked it because of its sincerity. "
- WenQing, Inkpot review of The Teenage Textbook Movie.
