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!

This movie had all the raw emotions we all face as people in general. It is truly was a fantastic movie. I love how the dynamics of Thandie Newton's role and the prejudiced cop (don't know his name, maybe Matt Dillion?) "crashed" and he saved her life after molesting her because of his prejudices. In fact all the characters in this film were excellently played. It was sad that Ryan Phillipe's character succumbed to his prejudices and killed that young man. I found that to be really sad. This is a movie that will make you cry, will cause you to think, and will really seep into your soul. I highly recommend it. You will NOT be disappointed!!

There are simply not enough words to describe how excellent this film is. Other reviewers have gone in depth as to its plot, style, craft and comparisons to other films.

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.

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.

A wonderful, intelligent, compelling examination of racism, filled with pathos, humor. Haggis shows us a world other films are afraid to tackle. Superb perfromances all around. I will be seeing it again soon.

I am completely at a loss why this movie won Best Picture. The concept of the film is great, but the execution of it is lacking. The plot is a complex one, interweaving many stories together to get one point across: racism is WRONG.

I appreciate that the movie didn't just deal with one ethnicity's racial problems. However, I don't like how the characters were treated. They were one dimensional, just a figure to emphasize the racial tension of that particular ethnicity. The "coincidences" that connected each story were too cliched to be believable. And I find it difficult to believe the level of blatant racism that each person in their respective scenarios encountered.

This film had so much potential, with its great cast and interesting concept. Too bad it had to beat us over the head with it.
