Crash (2004)

Rothe Blog CrashThree and a Half Stars

Starring a whole slew of people, Matt Dillon, Sandra Bullock, Don Cheadle, Jennifer Esposito, and Brendan Fraiser, this movie is slightly deceptive from its advertising, if you even saw that. A Lion Gates Film with thin exposure, this movie is all about racial situations, events happening to many different individuals over the span of a couple of days.

This movie made me think. I tired to figure out if this movie was really any deeper than just a film to give perspective on bigotry. The main reason I gave this movie over a three star, was that I didn’t know how many of the situations would end. They were very intense, guns, fires and explosions in natural settings with the law and car accidents. But you get to truly see how someone could be angry, you have empathy for just about every situation, and it shows the good in all cultures, that all cultures basically want the same thing, family, love, and happiness.

Not many people, however, would like this. It is hardly a movie you would watch many times, or is entertaining. I would recommend it to those who want to think, see something different. But don’t expect something usual in any of the roles of these actors, it will throw you for a loop.

Jeff…I”m checking up on you 🙂

I loved this movie. As anyone who knows me would agree, I like to think. However, I have watched it four times so far. Once with my father who does not usually go for my “artsy” picks and once with my boyfriend who only sometimes takes that chance. Both agreed, this is a must see.
