I sat up and watched this movie on Sunday night expecting to see an eclectic mish-mash of stories contrived into a ‘film’ designed to profile ‘A’ list wannabe actors and former ‘A’ list try-to-be actors.
Boy, was I in for a surprise, no wonder this dark horse scooped the pool. Despite the racist cynicism and a high degree of bad language, this movie impacts you in so many ways. The characters show how anyone on a bad day can make those eternal choices we all regret.
Looking through the eyes of broken people we see how co-dependency doesn’t come only in the walls of that place we call home. The real challenge with Crash is to see life through someone else’s eyes. I’ll come back to this one, but I have to say the reason for seeing crash is to find out how we all need a ‘cloak of invincibility’.
