[Crash] is sharply observed and frequently extremely funny as well as artfully orchestrated.
February 23, 2015
[Haggis] makes his directing debut with a screenplay that often seems rigged and contrived, but comes to life via excellent acting and a philosophical argument that bigotry and benevolence are inextricably intertwined.

Instead of heartwarming messages about forgiveness, it honours ambiguity and brings us close, closer than is comfortable, in fact, to what Americans today are really thinking about one another.
February 23, 2015
Crash is a movie with problems, but those simply make Haggis' vision, his clear reflection of us, so powerful.

Crash is a very watchable and well-constructed piece of work, and a potential script masterclass: but its daringly supercharged fantasies of racial paranoia and humanist redemption are not to be taken too seriously.

The script is clever, the racial theme is worthy of Newsnight, and the editing just sublime.

What makes Crash so gripping -- so terrifying in spots, so moving in others, and even a little funny at times -- is how nothing happens as we think it will.
February 23, 2015
The anxiousness to be provocative weighs too heavily. That said, Crash has the big ambitions we should get every week.

Experiencing a movie like Crash is the equivalent of walking merrily down the road on a warm summer day, then suddenly falling neck-deep into ice-cold water.

Movies don't come better acted, as lucidly written or, most importantly, more capable of grabbing a viewer emotionally and intellectually than this exceptional ensemble drama about racial and ethnic relations in urban America today.

February 23, 2015
Set in a simmering cauldron of racial tensions where subtle nuance can cut as deep as unambiguous hostility, it's a powerful drama about the often bewildering contradictions that underlie human behaviour.

February 23, 2015
Using a complex but comprehensible web of fraught relationships, chance encounters and random circumstances, [Haggis] provides a snapshot of a city strained to breaking.

While the mini-genre it occupies -- multi-storylined ensemble pieces about dysfunctional life in southern California -- is already well-established, Crash is a superb, sometimes literally breath-taking new addition to this august group.
January 6, 2014
Provocative, moving and powerful, this multi-stranded LA story is undoubtedly one of the best films of the year. Just don't drive to see it.
