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 saw it in the first place. Paul seemed really humble. However, I now call him Paul Hagface because when he won the award with Bobby Moresco he did not give Bobby any time to thank his family or anyone. This I consider to be very bad behavior.
