“That waitress sized us up in two seconds. We’re black and black people don’t tip. So she wasn’t gonna waste her time.”
Crash won three Oscars; best film of the year, best screenplay and best editing. So there must be something good to witness here, right?
The answer is definitely yes- this drama is impactful and relevant over ten years after its release.
Crash deals with racial prejudice using an all star cast. The events of the film seem extreme but not unrealistic. Citizens of L.A. have encounters with each other, affecting and being affected by one another, positively and negatively.
The score is memorable, as are some key performances. The film has some very powerful moments and the story is well written.
This film should be viewed by all as a reminder of why not to judge people based on appearance.
Overall Rating: 8.5/10
