Crash (2004)


Everyone's a little bit racist.
So basically: The lives of a group of people in L.A. are intertwined for the span of two days. Each of the characters have their own problems to deal with and each story involves a different perspective on racism.

I don't understand how someone could be that racist. Srs. I really, honestly do not get it. At all. Like, why people like steak. Is that a bad example? I don't know, but yeah. It was a very compelling movie, tho. The characters, which drive the story, are all interesting and not one-dimensional (well, mabbs Sandra Bullock's character) as one might suspect because of such a plot. I liked Daniel and how he interacted with his daughter. Ludacris was a tad annoying, and very hypocritical, which I guess was supposed to be humorous, which it was to an extent, but when someone is going off about how the racial stereotype is untrue and, well ... ludicrous, and then proceeds to fit right into it, it's a bit of a disappointment. Peter was excellent playing opposite him, however.

This movie should be on the list and deserves the "prestige."

Ziggi seal of approval!


  1. It's one of my favorite movies. I loved Terrence Howard in it. And also the young guy with the daughter, their storyline was awesome.

  2. Theirs was my favourite, also :)
