It’s election time, so mark your calendars for a very important meeting!

Movie Review: Crash

Two black teenagers eye a wealthy, white couple. A Middle Eastern man argues with a gun salesman he’s trying to buy from. A black cop makes love with his Hispanic partner. Where do all of these storylines go? You’ll be surprised how artfully the storylines are interweaved in Crash.

What makes Crash so unique is that it doesn’t shy away from conflict. It confronts the viewers’ racial, political, and moral beliefs. With a directness that recently has been absent in other films, Crash will leave questions splattered in your mind long after the credits finish.

The genre of Crash is formally drama. This is only useful information for finding where it’s located in Blockbuster. Like all great movies, Crash defies any single genre. The single best word to describe it is not drama, but revelation.

Crash recently upset Brokeback Mountain for the Academy Award for Best Picture for 2005. Go borrow Crash and find out why.
Then let’s talk about the ending. My mind is still blown away by how paradoxically beautiful Crash is.
