Summary: A provocative, unflinching look at the complexities of racial tolerance in contemporary America. Diving headlong into the diverse melting pot of post-9/11 Los Angeles, this compelling urban drama tracks the volatile intersections of a multi-ethnic case of characters' struggles to overcome their fears as they careen in and out of one another's lives.

Hi, my name is crash. I am a movie. I am an "Issues" film. I will ram this message into your head until it bleeds. I also have "Enya" style music. Do you want to commit suicide now??? How this overbaked turkey got an academy award is beyond me... Watching this made me feel like I'd fucked up the arse by Oprah (Who devoted an ENTIRE episode of her show to promoting this dreck)
Crash (2005) won three Oscars, but that doesn't justify the movie. It only adds to what its worth.
It speaks volumes about the film when I say this is my first review on the site. Not that, I am a great reviewer.
On the down side, Crash takes quite a lot from Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, in terms of the flow and story-line.
On the upside, well, to be the least philosophical, Crash weaves the myriad web of human relationships without ever letting any of the threads dissolve into
Keeps you riveted though it's a very average film. Just feels like the writer strung a whole bunch of racist incidents together into a storyline which does not make for a good film. Didactic and simplistic.
By the movieís end, we get a layered, complex drama that works on numerous levels, but subtlety isnít the scriptís strong point. With that being said, Crash packs such a thoughtful, emotional punch and itís supported by such an incredible cast that itís irresistible. [Full Review]
Emotionally, it's very powerful. The amount of coincidences begin to get ridiculous, and sometimes the emotional manipulation can be too obvious. But, I'd be lying if I said that emotional manipulation didn't work on me a couple of times.
