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

5.0 out of 5 stars "In L.A., nobody touches you." 26 April 2006
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars you either "GET IT" or you dont 22 Mar 2006
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disturbingly good 16 Mar 2006
I watched Crash with increasingly mixed emotions, the films subject, racial predjudice, is at times uncomfortable to watch. However, as the film progressed, the characters developed, and the image you had of them turned round. Its difficult to review without giving away any of the twists, so my advice is, watch it and be prepared for a bumpy emotional rollercoaster ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern day classic 1 Nov 2005
An Altmanesque exploration of LA’s clashing sub-cultures that appears to be about race, but is actually much more. People judge each other, live up to their stereotypes (often knowingly), but are occasionally surprised or challenged. Perhaps surprisingly, Crash is never judgemental. It observes rather than lectures.

5.0 out of 5 stars "...It's A Really Good Cloak..." - Crash on BLU RAY 28 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A Persian father is booted out of a gun store in Los Angeles because of a verbal battle with the white all-American shop owner about Bin Laden and 9/11. Farad (played to a tee by the brilliant Shaun Toub) simply wants to defend his small general store against further racial attacks and thieves. His beautiful and sophisticated daughter Darii (played by Bahar Soomekh) steps up the counter to defend her rattled father. She demands bullets for the gun she is going to buy for him and randomly asks for the 'red box' behind him. But the shop owner (a fantastic Jack McGee of "Rescue Me") doesn't tell Darii how much 'bang' for your bucks the red ones give. And so a sequence of events begins that will eventually see a child in the arms of her Latino father with his face contorted in agony as he holds her limp body to his chest...

Interlocking something like nine different stories into one cohesive unit and then trying to deal with the explosive subject of racism within 'everybody' was always going to be a tall order. So why did Don Cheadle and all the other Hollywood big names believe in it so? Ten minutes into 2004's "Crash" and the answer is obvious - the simply stunning script Director Paul Haggis co-wrote with Bobby Moresco.

The dialogue comes at you with a ferocity and brilliance that is in your face in every angry and difficult scene - yet it's also loaded with subtle undercurrents of truth about how people really are - and what they really think - on all sides.
