Product Description

They all live in Los Angeles. And in the next 36 hours, they will collide.

Movie studios, by and large, avoid controversial subjects like race the way you might avoid a hive of angry bees. So it's remarkable that Crash even got made; that it's a rich, intelligent, and moving exploration of the interlocking lives of a dozen Los Angeles residents--black, white, latino, Asian, and Persian--is downright amazing. A politically nervous district attorney (Brendan Fraser) and his high-strung wife (Sandra Bullock, biting into a welcome change of pace from Miss Congeniality) get car-jacked by an oddly sociological pair of young black men (Larenz Tate and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges); a rich black T.V. director (Terrence Howard) and his wife (Thandie Newton) get pulled over by a white racist cop (Matt Dillon) and his reluctant partner (Ryan Phillipe); a detective (Don Cheadle) and his Latina partner and lover (Jennifer Esposito) investigate a white cop who shot a black cop--these are only three of the interlocking stories that reach up and down class lines. Writer/director Paul Haggis (who wrote the screenplay for Million Dollar Baby) spins every character in unpredictable directions, refusing to let anyone sink into a stereotype. The cast--ranging from the famous names above to lesser-known but just as capable actors like Michael Pena (Buffalo Soldiers) and Loretta Devine (Woman Thou Art Loosed)--meets the strong script head-on, delivering galvanizing performances in short vignettes, brief glimpses that build with gut-wrenching force. This sort of multi-character mosaic is hard to pull off; Crash rivals such classics as Nashville and Short Cuts. A knockout. --Bret Fetzer

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!

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.

You mean to tell me...there wasn't a better movie than this last year?

I appreciate the messages that this movie tries to bring out-that we are all connected in some way despite our color, that there are larger issues within each one of us that others don't know about-- but it seemingly fails miserably in its presentation of its issues. The main problem with this movie is that it tries way too hard to push the racism issue over and over again to the point of nausea. This isn't a film that lets you decide on your own about anything: it beats you over the head with it, and, just to make sure, hits you again.

Watching the movie, there was one thought that continued to come into my mind: Could a movie be more stereotypical or prototyped? All the characters have some racism agenda on their minds or in their lives. We have the two thugs who don't believe they have been given a chance in society. We have the white racist cop. We have the two white yuppie-wannabes. We have the foreign store clerk. Can this movie pick out a few more stereotypes to throw at us?

There are so many issues that irked me about this film. I know that we should not take everything we see at face-value in a film, but this film was so overtly blunt and forceful about it's theme of racism that it really got quite annoying. There literally is no shred of subtleness in this film: we know exactly what the characters seemingly are about. Another annoyance was the absolute preposterous circumstances and situations that seemingly arise again and again, namely the coincidence of the white racist cop (Matt Dillon) saving the black woman who he just happened to abuse the night earlier during a traffic stop.

Format: DVD
In Los Angeles, a questionable traffic stop by a bigoted cop (Matt Dillon) and his nervous partner (Ryan Phillippe) leave a married African-American couple (Thandie Newton and Terrence Howard) in pieces. When Peter (Larenz Tate) and Anthony (Chris "Ludacris" Bridges) carjack the District Attorney's (Brendan Fraser) SUV, his wife Jean (Sandra Bullock) goes on a racial tear to justify her own depression. Daniel (Michael Pena) is a quiet, polite Hispanic locksmith who finds aggression from a Persian family who loses everything in a store robbery he tried to prevent. And Graham (Don Cheadle) is an African-American detective looking for his lost little brother, forced to use his skin color to tow the company line when corruption rears its head in the department.

Last year, writer Paul Haggis left audiences thunderstruck by the power of his screen writing adaptation of the heartfelt Oscar winner, "Million Dollar Baby." With "Crash," Haggis returns behind the camera (after years of television work), and once again delivers a masterful movie-going experience.

While covering a multitude of arguments and ideas, Haggis's theme for "Crash" centers on the thought of faulty human communication; the film suggests that people have grown cold to affection and respect, instead immediately using hatred and paranoia as a way of communicating with their fellow man, almost always with disastrous consequences. The L.A. backdrop to the film explores the intense racial loathing and confusion that plagues the city, and while I'm not a fan of using the tired metropolis as a location for any film, "Crash" almost couldn't be set anywhere else. The setting has just the right melting pot flashpoint posture to sell this seething tale, instilling the film with a realistic take on racial claustrophobia.

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.
