A muddled sort. I thought this was a great film for such a large ensemble cast. In fact, this could be in the top 5 great ensemble casts. Its superiorness as a film might be a little disputed. I am glad to see a film that tackles racism and prejudice truthfully and not in some after-school special way. However, I just thought more could have been done (I mean come on, what was with the Asian characters having no input whatsoever in the plot and character interactions?). And like many hyperlink movie, you are left just realizing the interconnectedness of all human beings, with all their racisms and prejudice, without the film contemplating all or any forms of political action to better serve the ending of dominant paradigms. Ah well, still a great film.
