Product Description

Product Description

Oscar-winning urban drama which tracks the volatile intersections of a multi-ethnic cast of characters' struggles to overcome their fears as they careen in and out of one another's lives. A Brentwood housewife and her DA husband; a Persian store owner; two police detectives who are also lovers; an African-American television director and his wife; a Mexican locksmith; two car-jackers; a rookie cop; and a middle-aged Korean couple - they all live in Los Angeles, and during the next 36 hours, they will all collide. Matt Dillon, Sandra Bullock, Don Cheadle and Karina Arroyave star.

From Amazon.co.uk

Movie studios, by and large, avoid controversial subjects like race the way you might avoid a hive of angry bees. So it's remarkable that Crash even got made; that it's a rich, intelligent, and moving exploration of the interlocking lives of a dozen Los Angeles residents--black, white, latino, Asian, and Persian--is downright amazing.

A politically nervous district attorney (Brendan Fraser) and his high-strung wife (Sandra Bullock, biting into a welcome change of pace from Miss Congeniality) get car-jacked by an oddly sociological pair of young black men (Larenz Tate and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges); a rich black T.V. director (Terrence Howard) and his wife (Thandie Newton) get pulled over by a white racist cop (Matt Dillon) and his reluctant partner (Ryan Phillipe); a detective (Don Cheadle) and his Latina partner and lover (Jennifer Esposito) investigate a white cop who shot a black cop--these are only three of the interlocking stories that reach up and down class lines.

Writer/director Paul Haggis (who wrote the screenplay for Million Dollar Baby) spins every character in unpredictable directions, refusing to let anyone sink into a stereotype. The cast--ranging from the famous names above to lesser-known but just as capable actors like Michael Pena (Buffalo Soldiers) and Loretta Devine (Woman Thou Art Loosed)--meets the strong script head-on, delivering galvanizing performances in short vignettes, brief glimpses that build with gut-wrenching force. This sort of multi-character mosaic is hard to pull off; Crash rivals such classics as Nashville and Short Cuts. A knockout. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
The movie is set in Los Angeles over a two-day period and follows several unrelated characters as they come to terms with racial prejudice and crime. Some stories eventually overlap; others do not. The characters are presented honestly with all their flaws and a few redeeming qualities. The large ensemble cast is excellent; standouts are Don Cheadle as an honest police detective who has problems at home and at work, Sandra Bullock and Brendan Fraser as a wealthy couple who are carjacked, Matt Dillon as a racist cop who takes care of his ailing father, Terrence Howard as a TV director whose wife Thandie Newton is the victim of abuse, and Shaun Toub as a Persian shop who takes revenge into his own hands.

Although each scene is only a few minutes long and we quickly move to another vignette, the writing is so good that we really come to know and care about the characters. Just when I thought I knew what would happen next, I was surprised, and the whole film was riveting. The plot and dialogue are completely real; there's a constant feeling of tension and isolation, and an unusual and calming soundtrack ties everything together. I didn't expect to like this movie, but I did. It paints a grim picture of Los Angelinos, but it's so well written and the acting is so good that I found it very satisfying.

This is a film similar to "Traffic" and "Magnolia" in as much as it has separate storylines running alongside each other, clashing at then end. It tells the stories of several different families/individuals living in LA. When I saw that rapper Chris "Ludicris" Bridges has a part in this film my heart sank, another rapper turned movie actor. I was so wrong, he is fantastic in his role as Anthony, a car jacker with a conscience. He won't rob other black people but thinks it perfectly alright to rob white, rich people at gun point. Bridges brings a touch of comedy to the role especially when he acidentally mows down a poor Chinese man. Racial inequality is the background theme to this film and each individual storyline touches on this issue. Matt Dillon is a policeman who oversteps the mark when pulling over a black movie director and his gorgeous wife. Sandra Bullock plays a spoilt housewife who shouts at her maid for not emptying the dishwasher and for taking too long at the grocery story. When she has her locks changed she assumes the locksmith will sell on her key to his "homies" just because he has tatoos. Her husband is the DA who surpresses any news stories that do not suit his agenda. An Iranian family struggle to defend their store against robbers and the father assumes everyone is a "cheater". There is a harrowing scene when Anthony discovers the van he has stolen is full of Cambodians chained to the sides, the going rate for a human being is much less than that for a car. People trafficking isn't a subject I'd see tackled in a film before and it is shocking. The characters in this film are all three-dimensional showing their good and bad sides. My review has made the story seem complicated but it was an engrossing watch. Probably a film you will watch more than once.

The whole point of this film is that it examines extremes of prejudice in all their forms. If that means it delivers its message with a sledge hammer then that is what the makers intended! It is a film about choices some of which appear good and some bad, but by the end of the film you are questioning your own morality because all the people you felt sorry for you end up hating and vice versa.
It shows extremes of behaviour and bigotry that you may find distasteful but then it explores the reasons and experiences that have brought those individuals to do the things they have. As other reviewers have said it is difficult to explain without giving away specific plot lines so i agree that this is a film that you must watch and make up your own mind.
As for the reviewers who have criticised the racism and bad language HELLO! this is the real world! if you really think that there are no racists, no people with prejudices and no one who swears in the world, then you obviously dont live on this planet.
This is not a film for the faint hearted or easily offended so be warned, but if you like a challenging subject, and a film that makes you reconsider your own morals and beliefs, whilst treating you as an adult, then this film is for you. Anyone else should pull their curtains, lock their doors and crawl back under their duvet because the real world is obviously not for you.
This is the best film I have seen since hotel rwanda, so please watch this film with an open mind and draw your own conclusions, but for me it is a stunning and thought provoking piece of film making and worthy of 5 stars and a bucket load of oscars.

This is definitely one of those films that you have to step back from and think – what the hell was that all about! On face value it seems like a film that’s only concerned with racism, but of course, there’s more to it than that?
So, we see the lives and actions of several blacks, whites, Iranians, Hispanics and other mixed races. We have: several police officers, a District Attorney, Store owners, a film director, a Locksmith, a maid, a health worker, husbands, wives, girlfriends, mums, dads, siblings – yes quite a mixture!
I had a good think about this film the next morning and the pennies slowly started to drop!
The film explores some of the reasons for racism – ignorance, fear, anger / revenge, simply the power to apply it, peer pressure, institutional racism, acceptance of white supremacy and force … and so on!
The film also looks at the outside influences on these characters lives – are they all just nasty people? There’s an awful lot packed into this film which needs chewing over to get the best from it?
Once I had got my head around it, it became a much better watch than I had originally thought; I could see why it won so many awards. Yes, a very entertaining film indeed.
