I appreciated the movie and understood the messages and meanings behind the surface, it just wasn't entertaining for me. It didn't have me enthralled in the stories.

Crash is a marvel of storytelling and directing. Yes, the interlocked stories are often based on the most contrived of coincidences. However, with inspired acting by a stellar ensemble cast and some skillful writing, the film is composed of multiple scenes and vignettes that still pack an emotional punch and thematic worth. One of 2005's best.

"Crash" by Yojimbo

This well intentioned story of intertwining lives in the cultural melting pot that is Los Angeles is an ambitious attempt to explore the grey area outside of political correctness. Nearly all of the characters display racism to various extents but it's done so in a way as to create three dimensional characters without demonization. It's sensitively directed and well played by all concerned with Terrence Howard in particular bringing depth to his black studio exec who suffers humiliation at the hands of the LAPD. Paul Haggis cut his teeth on TV comedy drama and it is very apparent here; the unlikely series of coincidences that unites the characters seems overly contrived and there is one too many of the kind of pop music montages that are the hallmark of lightweight American TV drama. It i...

Crash (2005) review

A myriad of figures that some interlace. Persian Farhad (Shaun Toub) and his daughter Dorri (Bahar Soomekh gets some heat when purchasing a gun. Los Angeles detectives Graham Waters (Don Cheadle), his partner Ria (Jennifer Esposito) gets involved with a car crash. Anthony (Chris "Ludacris" Bridges) and Peter (Larenz Tate) steals the car of Rick Cabot (Brendan Fraser), the local district attorney, and his wife, Jean (Sandra Bullock). LAPD Officer John Ryan (Matt Dillon) sexually harasses the Cameron Thayer’s (Terrence Howard) wife Christine (Thandie Newton). Ryan’s partner, Tom Hanson (Ryan Phillippe), makes an enormous mistake because of mistaken judgment.

Had themes of racism (Officer Ryan/Jean), faith (Farhad), being too polite (Cameron), wrong assumption (Hanson), self image (...

Crash is Trash

It seems that Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco took a notebook and wrote down every racial insult known to man and then said let's make a movie. "A good tree does not produce bad fruit" the saying goes, but they have a very bad person doing a very good thing and a very good person all of a sudden doing a very bad thing.

There are several characters that are interconnected and not very well either. When a mother was crying over her son in the hospital, I wasn't sure which one was her son (and Don Cheadle's brother) because they never really explained that beforehand. We just had to guess.

This movie made me cry, in a certain scene which I'm sure got to a lot of people (see MOVIES THAT MAKE ME CRY list).

I did see Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco speak about this movie, which is why I sa...
