Everyone needs to see Crash. Love it or hate it but please don't ignore it. I found it slightly contrived but in some ways that is its strength. It multi angles stories so that we see all sides of the coin so to speak. It may or may not be the best movie of the year but it is exactly the kind of film brain dead Hollywood should make more of!

"Crash" is simply one of the most powerful,relevant and emotionally challenging ensemble piece films this viewer has ever seen. It is about the collision of cultures in Los Angeles and the effect of prejudice on blocking effective communication and resolve. It is about redemption, tolerance and lessons learned.
"Crash" will shock you,enlighten you and amaze you with its expose of troubled lives in a human jungle that dehumanizes us. In a large city people crash so they can feel something. These peoples lives collide and the lessons learned from the experience, change them fom caterpillars to butterflies. We can't accomplish anything when we carry an albatross of hatred in our soul. The consequences are dire as this film shows. We can only move ahead after we repair our damages and begin again in a new remodeled and wiser model of ourselves. "Crash" could be life changing. Very few films have this potential.

I wasn't entertained in the least. Crash is a terribly one-dimensional sermon that lacks balance. It's well-acted, sure, but the attempt to make every character multi-faceted and complex actually waters down the message. It created a weird form of self-defeating anti-melodrama for me.
