Product Description

From the producers of the Academy Award®-winning Best Motion Picture of the same title, “Crash” takes an in-depth, up-close and deeply personal look at some of the lives slamming together in the melting post of Los Angeles. Led by film icon Dennis Hopper, it’s here where all ends of the social spectrum meet that collisions happen, shattering lives and creating new futures. Now, for the first time on DVD, the complete first season of this daring drama from Starz is available in this 4-disc set. Includes all 13 compelling episodes plus tons of bonus features!

Amazon.com

This episodic adaptation of the Oscar-winning drama Crash succeeds primarily on the strength of its performances, particularly that of Dennis Hopper, though its complex interwoven storylines have their engaging moments as well. Writer-director Paul Haggis, who helmed the feature film version, and actor Don Cheadle, who starred in it, serve as executive producers for the series, which again looks at the intersections between class and race in a sprawling meta-Los Angeles. Hopper is given full rein to devour scenery whole as an aging, out-of-control record producer who forms an unlikely partnership with his new driver (Jocko Sims), an aspiring songwriter. Elsewhere, police officers Arlene Tur and Ross McCall deal with infidelity and racism while keeping the peace; Clare Carey struggles with feelings for a married real estate agent (D.B. Sweeney) while caring for her ailing father; and EMT Brian Tee attempts to rise above his gangland past. It's a beguiling mix of storylines, some better played than others; Hopper makes his mad genius repellently fascinating, though Tom Sizemore runs a close second as a police detective who arrives late in the season. If there's any quibble with the series, it's that the issues it chooses to tackle may be too unwieldy to address in detail in just 13 episodes (a problem that dogged the feature version as well), though clearly, the writing and direction is capable enough to produce some dramatic results over the course of several seasons. As it stands, season 1 of Crash is an intriguing and frequently adventurous television series that bears further examination as it progresses.

The four-disc set of Crash's debut season presents all 13 episodes in widescreen, and offers an agreeable selection of supplemental features to accompany them. Chief among them is a 20-minute featurette on the show's conception and production, featuring interviews with Haggis, series creator Glen Mazzaro, Hopper, and many others. There's also a three-minute alternate ending for the final episode of the season (somewhat more satisfying than the televised version), and a brief discussion with the cast on their respective characters. A raucous promo with Hopper for season 2 and promos for several unrelated movies round out the extras; DVD-ROM content includes cast bios and episodes of other Starz Channel series. --Paul Gaita

4.0 out of 5 stars Moran Atias - Do I Really Need to Say More! January 11, 2012
Format:DVD
There are much more than 2 good reasons (as referenced by the title) to watch this. I saw the show in real time while this was Starz Networks entree to a show with a serial format. I came to this being offered as a DVD when checking Amazon to see if there are other works available by Ms. Atias and was somewhat surprised by the fact that this fine show had only a handful of reviews.

Amazon does an excellent job by way of an overview of the show. Like the movie of the same name, Crash offers multiple story lines that at some point intersect (the style made popular by Pulp Fiction)

My personal favorite story line, of course, involves Ms. Atias, as the much younger wife of a Gypsy leader (yes there are gypsies in the USA) and the cop played by Ross McCall. One of my favorite lines was when Ross McCall was asked how he could get involved with a married gypsy woman and he replied "I thought she was a Latina!"

Kudos to the writers that produced a script that allowed Moran Atias to be both controversial and in a near perpetual state of undress. If she is not on your "bucket list", she should be!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Surprise that has Potential February 2, 2010
Format:DVD
This is a difficult series to review. I would say that it is less than the sum of its parts.

There are several storylines that are extremely entertaining:

(1) the has-been rock and roll producer who wants to find one final "star act" before his career (and life) goes down in flames;

(2) the woman who suspects that her estranged father was always right about her husband's career prospects;

(3) another woman who suspects that her lover may be a mob enforcer/ contract killer;

(4) an illegal alien who is attempting to make it in America -- crossing the border with only the bloody shirt on his back.

However, I thought that each of these stories would have been better told as four distinctive full length movies than as they are presented here as a (very loosely) interwoven story.

The acting in the series is strong as is the writing in the majority of the episodes. But, in the 2nd Season, I would like a rationale as to why I should view this series as one complete narrative as opposed to a collection of fascinating short stories.

I enjoyed this DVD very much. I would readily order every season. I have ordered Season 2 already but that seems to be all there is at this time.
