    While it's heart is in the right place, and it has some truly fantastic scenes, it suffers from over sentimentality and a lack of subtly that it so desperately needs. The characters are more like caricatures of specific archetypes that it feels almost comical at points, though at others it feels genuine and powerful.

    Fantastic! I think this won the Best Picture Oscar awhile back, and it totally deserved it. This film is just so indescribably entertaining, with great characters and storyline. Definitely check this out.

    Solidly entertaining racial soap opera melodrama.

    Crash--or more appropriately, "2 Degrees of Separation: The World's Angriest Racists"--is a load of Oscar bait fluff. While racism is an important issue to address, so is verisimilitude in a screenplay, and Crash disservices worthy movie material. Overall, Crash proves to be a poorly constructed story with too many characters whose lives are intertwined by a series of implausibly tragic miscues, each ultimately reshaping the respective bigoted worldviews. And while Crash isn't all bad--there are some decent performances to be salvaged--it is predominantly an over-blown, pretentious piece of crap.
