“Crash from Paul Haggis, the writer/director/creator of...”

Written on: 06/02/2009 by xam27 (12 reviews written)

Crash from Paul Haggis, the writer/director/creator of above-average, quickly cancelled television series like EZ Streets and The Black Donnellys, comes Crash, one of the best films of 2005. The films centers around the intersecting lives of (mostly) compelling people in Los Angeles, all of whom are effected negatively by racism. Most of the film is great. Matt Dillon, Ludacris, Thandie Newton and Terrence Howard are all excellent, and the parts of the film that revolve around their characters… Read Full Review

“Haggis' big screen debut rightly earnt this an Oscar,...”

Written on: 28/01/2008 by degbert (120 reviews written)

Haggis' big screen debut rightly earnt this an Oscar, as it attempts to cover ground largely avoided by tinseltown, namely that of systemic racism in LA (read American) life. Covering a variety of professions and attitudes as well as a diversity of ethnic representations, this was a bold venture that is brilliantly brought to life thanks to a number of key attributes.

First, Haggis' breathtaking dialogue and clever plot work make this set of interwoven stories link with real panache. How the… Read Full Review

“I didn't know what to expect from Crash so I was...”

Written on: 09/02/2006 by StephD (2 reviews written)

I didn't know what to expect from Crash so I was fairly open minded when I watched it. I was really pleasantly suprised, the message is clear but not rammed down your throat like in other films. There are lots of famous faces in it that only have bit parts, but the acting was superb. A really good film, that I would consider getting on DVD… Read Full Review

“I had the privilege of watching Crash a few nights ago...”

Written on: 23/08/2005 by Hank (124 reviews written)

I had the privilege of watching Crash a few nights ago and I'm glad to report that this is a truly wonderful film.

This is a classic ensemble piece which focuses on a set of L.A. citizens whose lives interweave over a 48 hour period.

The film is at times disturbing as well as being moving as it examines race relations in Los Angeles. The film doesn't shy away from examining bigotry and stereotyping however the race issues that are examined are really a backdrop for a collection of fantastic… Read Full Review

Cammie's Response to Hank's Review

Written on: 31/03/2007

To be fair Hank, I wouldn&#039;t exactly call &#039;Mr. & Mrs. Smith&#039; an over-the-top "unintelligent" blockbuster. In my opinion, just because a film does not address a prevailing social issue, such as racism, does not qualify it as &#039;unintelligent&#039;.
<br/>And what&#039;s this about "they actually got a good performance out of Ryan Philippe"?...This kid has always shown his brilliance...&#039;Cruel Intentions&#039; was only his beginning.
<br/>I really like your description of the acting performances of the other actors/actresses...you could have given more detail about the storyline of the film though.

Hank's Response to Hank's Review

Written on: 24/05/2007

Well after having the misfortune of sitting through Mr and Mrs Smith I think the description of 'unintelligent' is probably flattering. How anyone could possibly rate that film as anything above 'diatribe' is beyond me.
<br/>
<br/>I thought Ryan Phillipe was pretty good in this but what else has he ever done? Cruel Intentions? Great! If you're a 15 year old girl......
<br/>
<br/>Crash actually has about 7 interweaving plots which is why I didn't go into any kind of detail re: the plot.
<br/>
<br/>When I write a review I try to tell the reader if the film is good or not. I find it difficult to talk too much about the plot without dropping in 'spoilers' so I try and keep plot summaries as basic as possible. In this film I think a plot description would inevitably lead to spoilers and possibly even telling the whole narrative.

“Not to be confused with David Cronenberg's...”

Written on: 08/08/2005 by Timix1 (33 reviews written)

Not to be confused with David Cronenberg's disturbing/hilarious 1996 movie of the same name, Crash features fellow Canadian writer/director (and Due South creator) Paul Haggis's big-screen debut. Reportedly inspired by a carjacking at gunpoint in the early 1990's, Haggis has used that experience to craft a gripping urban drama set in Los Angeles that deals with the complexities of race and prejudice in a post 9/11 America. Looking similar in structure to the likes of SHORT CUTS and MAGNOLIA… Read Full Review

I really appreciate this review...wonderfully written and organised, However, you could try to break the comments into short paragraphs so the reader is not intimidated by the single long paragragh, and so he/she does not get lost in the monotony of successive sentences....just a thought.

Written on: 02/04/2007

Hi Cammie,
<br/>
<br/>Thanks for the kind comments about my review! About the single-paragraph issue, I actually always break up my reviews into 3-4 paragraphs (I agree with you 100% that paragraphs make longer blurbs less daunting to read). Unfortunately on a few occasions, either my write-up arrives to the Reviewcentre folks in one big lump, or the editor who posts my approved submission neglects to leave in the paragraphs.
<br/>
<br/>It&#039;s happened a handful of times and believe me, I cringe whenever I see a review of mine formatted that way. So to make a long story short, you&#039;re absolutely right about the paragraph suggestion; I just don&#039;t have the luxury of looking over the site&#039;s editors&#039; shoulders to make sure they stay in the review!
