Editorial Reviews

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.

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

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!

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.

THE GOOD:

The acting were great especially Terrence Howard and Thandie Newton. Terrence Howard should have been nominated for Best Supporting Actor instead of Matt Dillon.

THE BAD:

I'm a visible minority (non-white) and I have experienced some form of racism in my life. BUT despite my life experiences and the movie's subject matter, I would definitely NOT say that this movie is the best of the year, in fact, it's FAR from it. I have problems with this movie both from a moviegoer's perspective and from a visible minority's perspective. Some of my problems with this movie are:

(1) Poor character development (or none at all). Just because we saw extremes in a character, for example, Matt Dillon being a racist cop and being a good caregiver to his ailing father, that does not mean in any way that the character is well-developed. Yes, I admit that in a big cast ensemble like in this movie, it is quite difficult for every character to be well-developed, BUT that does not mean that at none of the characters should be like that.

(2) The dialogue seems really contrived to the point that I'm really surprised this movie won for Best Original Screenplay. They should show this movie in a screenplay writing class NOT because it's good but to show students and future screenplay writers what NOT to do. I just felt like I've been hit by the head over and over again how bad racism is. I get it.

(3) The plot seems so coincidental, it is laugable.

A great cast and good intentions make most of this film go down easily--too easily. Don Cheadle, Sandra Bullock, Matt Dillon, Thandie Newton and Terrence Howard do sterling work in this tale of culture clashes, prejudices, and coincidences in Los Angeles, and scene by scene the film is gripping with some amazingly powerful and poignant moments. However, the script's desire to throw stereotypes up on the screen, while brave, is also its weakness: too many of the overwhelmingly large number of speaking parts are, in fact, stereotypes, and no amount of happy wish-fulfillment or well-intentioned scenes that come across as patronizing (an injured Bullock embracing her Latina housekeeper and telling her she's her best friend) can paper over the fault lines the film purports to examine. Cheadle, as he was in "Hotel Rwanda," is the throughline of the movie, and his knockout final scene with his mother has a dramatic punch and ambiguity that the rest of the movie needs; too often, it feels like something that would've been incendiary in the mid-90's after Rodney King and O.J. (especially if Spike Lee had tackled it), but now seems simultaneously overwrought and tame. You'll admire the performances (a deserving SAG win), but the more you think about the movie as a whole, the more it seems too tidy--and putting it up against the brainy "Good Night and Good Luck" and the shattering "Brokeback Mountain," it's flaws are even more apparent, especially the awful video quality. It's a water-cooler "buzz" film right now (thanks to the Oscar idiocy), but how it will stand up over time is a very big question mark--it was #36 in Entertainment Weekly's year-end critic's roundup, and #56 in PREMIERE'S. ("Brokeback" and "Good Night" were #2 and #3, respectively.) Good for high school civics classes if they can get past the (voluminous) profanity, and for those more interested in praising the film's reach over its actual grasp.

Brokeback Mountain will always be remembered as the Best Film of 2005
The thing to understand is that all of this had to do with linking Crash and Brokeback Mountain. While BBM truly deserved Best Picture, beyond the homophobia, contriving this controversy fueled sales of Crash. Would anyone be thinking about Crash now if BBM or any of the other films won instead?... Read More

I didn't like it one bit, it was way too contrived...
Agreed...can't bring myself to see it again, just for the sake of discussion. Ponderous, corny, tell-it-all lines like the opener: "People in L.A. live in all this glass and steel...they crash into each other just to feel something," UGH!!

Crash, a view from a non-American.
The issue isn't so much _what_ this movie says, as _how_ it says it. It is appallingly contrived and amateurish. Had it been a six-hour TV miniseries, with the time to develop the characters and their relationships, it could have been an outstanding film.
