It's fine. Decent performances, moral messages, standard contrivances somewhat balanced by moments of truth, however small. It's commentary on race isn't explored the way it could have been, and its perspective is more or less safe and traditional. The whole thing is rather traditional, which wouldn't bother me I suppose if I hadn't been exposed to so much inventive, impressive, original, and great cinema as of late.
A life changing experience and one of the most overlooked films of all time. Incredible casting, wonderful music score by James Newton Howard, a terrifi and plausible screenplay that would make Haggis and company feel ashamed of their "Crash". It's a positive and great experience.
