Additional Features

Crash's theatrical and DVD release history is very interesting. Literally crashing on its original release in the theaters, the film really picked up its huge fan base mostly on the DVD market. Now that Crash holds the Oscar for 2006 Best Picture, it is not surprising that Lions Gate rushed out a 2-disc Director's Cut Edition with the Award mention stamped right on the packaging. The question is, is the new director's cut release that different from the original DVD that fans and the Academy fell in love with? This director's cut does breathe a little more life into some of the characters and helps bridge a few gaps in some scenes. But in all honesty, the minor changes are not plot-altering or anything groundbreaking. Heck, even Haggis admits this in the liner notes, openly stating that the film that was in the theaters was his original "director's cut." With this new version he was given an opportunity to sand off some rough edges that bothered him due to rush editing and the short shooting schedule you have to deal with on a low budget film. Chances are if you loved Crash, you will be equally happy with either version. If you prefer to dismiss Crash, the new cut will not change your mind. Unfortunately, there is no post-Oscar feature commentary. The feature-length chat with Haggis, Don Cheadle and writer/producer Bobby Moresco is the exact same as on the original release. What is new is a new Haggis introduction to the film; "Behind the Metal and Glass - Making of Crash", a decent "making-of" feature; some music montages; a music video; and a bunch of deleted scenes with director commentary that are interesting to watch once. Also included is a new 6.1 DTS mix allowing this 2-disc version of Crash to sound a tad bit crisper than the already crisp 5.1 mix which was on the original DVD release. If you already have Crash you will probably be OK keeping it and not bother to upgrade to this edition. However, if you never saw the film, you might as well pick up this version with the minor, additional bells and whistles. --Rob Bracco

Product Description

This compelling urban thriller tracks the volatile intersection of a multiethnic cast of characters struggling to overcome their fears as they careen in and out of one another's lives. In the gray area between black and white, victim and aggressor, during the next 36 hours, they will all collide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crash September 7, 2005
Format:DVD
This is the truest movie out there on racism, and the preconceived notions we ALL (no matter what color) try not to admit to to a certain extent. This was not a "lets bash the white man" movie either, the racism was across the board. The biggest surprise was to come about an hour in, and I was stunned to see the revelation of that storyline (with Matt Dillon). This film requires paying attention to, please stay with it, it will pay off. High recommend!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much hype August 14, 2006
Format:DVD
I passed up this film when first released on DVD but by hook or by crook, not to mention a nod from the Academy, I decided to give it a look. I was an entertaining two hours, but the in-your-face treatment of racial tension (is that ALL they talk about?), followed by self-congratulatory featurettes in which the film's creators convince us they are doing us great social service by making folks of every persuation confront their prejudice, reek of naivete and opportunism. (The 'Introduction to Crash by Director Paul Haggis' feature warranted its own icon, but consisted only of Haggis grinning in a self-satisfied manner and informing us that he was director Paul Haggis and here was HIS film, Crash). Am I supposed to take a deep breath? Make the popcorn? Take a potty break?

The film looks fine, sounds fine and is well-acted, and other reviews here will outline the who-and-what, so I'll merely leave you with a parting thought. A few years ago, a black man named Rodney King was severely beaten by LA cops. The incident was caught on camera and the police were initially acquitted by a largely white jury. This resulted in rioting in African-American neighborhoods, which cost one caucasian truck driver his life (wrong place, wrong time)and ruined many a business in the area (many owned by Koreans and Asians). If that true-life sequence of events didn't lead to revolutionary changes in people's attitudes (on all sides), an over-rated, but watchable, feature film will not begin to scratch the surface, despite its makers' smug post-Oscar posturing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could this film have BEEN more heavy-handed? April 26, 2006
Format:DVD
Now don't get me wrong; Crash is decent, and completely watchable. Best Picture material? Uh, no.

Look, I think it's fine and even occasionally necessary to remind people that racism exists and that, despite conscious or unconscious tendencies toward racism, people are more complicated than we think at first glance. Yes, sometimes there's a reason (although not an excuse) for racism.

And having said all that, I still don't think Crash is anything close to a great movie. It whacks you over the head again and again with its message that a) all races are okay, and b) even racists are people, too. It accomplishes this message by taking a minimally simplistic view of racism--racists are baaaaad people--and complicating it, albeit as minimally as possible, by giving all the racists one redeeming quality.

Yes, Matt Dillon's character is racist... but he loves his father! Yes, Sandra Bullock's character thinks all people of color are lazy... but she actually cares about her Latina housekeeper! Yes, Don Cheadle's character is insensitive toward his girlfriend/partner (he calls her white, but she's not; he calls her Mexican, but she's not that either)... but he loves his mother!

And so on. It's something we've all come across in our everyday experience and thought about in much more nuanced terms than this film cares to do. If you have a sixth-grader, then perhaps this film is for him.

Now, let me repeat: this film is decent, and watchable. Perhaps I'd be less disappointed if Academy voters hadn't, in a colossally dumb move, annointed Crash as the best picture of the year. It isn't, not by a long shot. But it's still enjoyable: well-directed, DEFINITELY well-acted, and the soundtrack is excellent. I just think that our national discourse on racism (and yes, movies are appropriate vehicles for this discourse) ought to move beyond such simplistic views.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Truth is Out There August 20, 2005
Format:DVD
When i sat down to see this movie i didnt know to much about it, but as it went through i realized that i got my monies worth. Unlike other movie addressing prejudice in the united states this movie covered views from many different social stand points. And besides that every event in the movie all ties together at the end which is great. if you are reading this, BUY THIS MOVIE...it'll change your outlook on life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hello, my name is Jeff and I'm a racist! August 21, 2007
Format:DVD
Crash could be the most absurd movie about how "real" people talk and act about racism. First off let me explain to anyone who has not seen this movie that there are some good actors in this film with good performances... for such a lousy script, many times they made something out of complete non scenes. So it has that going for it, and that's where it stops. the plot is completely ridiculous, that people would run into one another at just the right time in a city the size of LA...come on. Ok, I'll suspend disbelief and let that one go, then there is the script, ouch! The dialog was so heavy handed it was like it was written by someone who once read a book about racism and never really encountered real people of different races and how they reacted to them in real social situations. There were moments in this film where i audibly cried out, "are you kidding me?" No one talks like this or about this stuff in this manner, it just doesn't happen. Real people don't act like this, fake Hollywood snobs might but not working America.. This movie was trying to be profound and say something about racism in America and all it said to me was the writer needs to get off his laptop and experience real people and not just the coked out, privileged, white, Hollywood elite he's been rubbing elbows with. This was like a 2 hour PSA. I believe, a decade from now, no one will be looking back at this as a great Oscar winner, it will go as unmentioned as Marisa Tome's Oscar for my cousin Vinnie. I found this film to not only be poorly written and directed but found it quite insulting to me. Racism is never talked about like this, it's swept under the rug, or joked about or talked about it a serious way when "those people" aren't around. Read more ›
