The acting throughout the film was top-notch, Michael Pena was wonderful and I got another chance to see Terrence Howard who is one of my favorite actors. The complexity of the script provides a good framework to explore racism as the central theme of the film. We see characters from different perspective and through them we can see ourselves and others we know. Sometimes people criticize films for not answering life questions. Crash isn't a film that will provide the answer or the means to end racism. But it does remind us how interconnected we are, how we judge others and focusing and holding on to anger can make us lash out and emotionally takes us down.
See this movie you'll have something to talk about afterward.
