Lightbulb Crash

Has anyone seen the movie Crash? I saw it on dvd over the holidays.

It is fast paced and keeps a person thinking up until the very end of the movie.

Basically it took many ethnic groups and the message was- that people are good and also people of all, 'stripes and colors' have some form of prejudice residing in them.

It was well worth watching.

Crash is definitely R-rated. The way the plot connected so many different people was excellent. The acting was great - especially by Don Cheadle of Hotel Rwanda. I think it should have been nominated for an Oscar, along with Cinderella Man.

It was R-rated, but it was because of violence and language. Not sex.

Larry I am glad to read that you found it to be an excellent movie.

The message was powerful and it is ashame that Hollywood did not see that it was fit to be included in the Oscars. grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

to Hollywood.

i watched it for an extra credit assignment last semester for school. powerful movie, really does make you think. -oh and there is actually one sex scene, well, close enough to it in my opinion, to help with upping the rating to R. and yes, there is a rediculous amount of bad language in it.
