This is one of those movies that is really about something. It has something that it wants to say. Amid the onslaught of mainstream hollywood fare, it is a surprise that such a movie would make the cut. And even with it's virtually unanimous critical praise, it went unnoticed through the multiplex. It has since seen a breath of resurgence as it was released to DVD and made into the shelves of video rental outlets.
As with 'Collateral', Crash captures the vibe of Los Angeles. The characters seemed so true. The script by 'Million Dollar Baby's Paul Haggis, brought each character to life. Their lives intertwine and come together with ironical twists and heart-breaking judgements. I loved it. You won't be disappointed. Easily one of the top ten of the year so far.A-
