This is a film that deals honestly and openly with race relations, especially as played out in America. We all harbor stereotypes, fears, judgments and yet a fascination with "the other" and we often do not realize just how this effects us and society as a whole. The movie digs deep into these emotions and draws them out brilliantly in a montage of triggers that are all woven together in a period of 24 hours in L.A.
Black, white, Puerto Rican/Mexican, Arab/Persian, mixed ethnicity, you name it, it's all in here and it's refreshingly in your face. It is for that very reason that the film is about hatred and hope, violence and redemption. Perhaps most poignantly, it is filled with all the complexity of modern life and provides no easy answers.
You will be left speechless. All of the actors, most well known, play roles that are against their "types" of roles and it is for this reason that it is perhaps so impacting and believable. It is a brilliant piece of cinema, one that should make us all realize that sanitizing culture in the name of political correctness is a time bomb.
Do not miss this film.
After many people recommended that I see this film, I finally broke down and rented it. I can honestly say that it in no way moved me or affected my outlook on life like so many people said it would. It left me asking why this film is so hyped and lauded.
The theme of the story is constantly rammed down your throat and played out by characters who are complete and extreme stereo-types of their races. Matt Dillon and Sandra Bullock's characters are laughingly predictable, as are Ludacris and Larenz Tate. The only thing I found touching about the film was the relationship of the locksmith and his daughter, which took all of 10 minutes of the movie. The other characters were so unredeming and abrasive that I didn't care what happened to them.
The end of the story brings hardly any change in the characters, and those that do are not based in reality. For those who have seen it, look to Sandra Bullock's character as reference. Keep in mind, this is suppose to be a day in the life of these people.
So what do you take away from this film? 'That we are all racists.' How profound.
If you want to see a good film about racism with well thought-out characters that you actually feel for, rent 'American History X'. There is redemeption and emotion 10 times over what you find in 'Crash'.

This is a great movie, with poignant commentary on how we connect with each other, and how sometimes our prejudices get in the way. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Rafael Vazquez

|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.
