Movie Review: Crash (2004)
I love to watch a good movie, but it has to really hold my attention, or I'll just read a book while my husband watches the film. Crash came out a few years ago, but I never watched it. I was looking at movies on Blockbuster one day and decided to rent Crash because it was on the most often rented list. I will have to say, this movie is definitely one of the best that I have seen lately. It was directed and written by Paul Haggis, who did an outstanding job. I recognized a few of the actors/actresses names, like Sandra Bullock, Tony Danza, and Matt Dillon. For a movie to really hold my attention, it needs to invoke real feelings. I need to get a little emotionally attached to the story; if that makes sense. This movie did this over and over again. I got angry, scared, sad, and relieved many times. The biggest part of the movie was about racism, and not just African Americans either. Everybody is a person, no matter their skin color. I don't want to give away too much, but I would like to give an example.
In one portion of the movie, a woman has racial/hate feelings/actions toward a Hispanic man with a tattoo on his neck who was replacing a lock on her door. Then, we see this man go home to his wife and little girl, who he just managed to move out of the ghetto to keep them safe. The woman had been completely wrong about him; she had judged him on his appearance. I highly recommend this movie to anyone. I would also like to mention that this movie earned three Oscars, and I can see why!
