Fabulous music, to begin with. Love Bird York's "In The Deep."

It's not too accpetable in this day and age of political correctness to tell it like it really is. That's what this movie really does.

I suspect that we all like to think we're above the ugliness that can grow within, whether it be prejudice, ingratitude, materialism, favourtism, or the like. Things we thought we'd never say or do, given the right cirumstances, we suddenly find ourselves falling straight into. And ironically, we often learn about the existence of these things in us, from the very people whom we've despised for displaying these very traits.

But our arrogant self-righteousness falls off when we find ourselves face to face with ourselves. In Bird's song, she pinpoints it:

"Thought you had all the answers to rest your heart upon,

but something happens, don't see it coming, now you can't stop yourself.

Now you're out there swimming in the deep.

"Life keeps tumbling you heart in circles till you let go

till you shed your pride and climb to heaven, and you throw yourself off.

Now you're out there spinning in the deep."

If we think we're above anything or anyone and we think we've got it all figured out, we'd better watch out! Things are not always what they seem.

I think what this movie did for me is that it reminded me that we're all afraid. Fear distorts and in the end hurts and kills anything that is innocent. The only way to defeat fear on this scale is by subversibly serving each other in small ways.

I keep this as a top film on my list. I was happy it won best picture that year. Basically a film about bigotry and redemption. The stories seem disparate but are woven together in the end. Brilliant!

This movie is not just entertaining, but beyond that, it is a necessary piece of work. Beyond the great performances (Sandra Bullock does her best work here, along with Don Cheadle and Ryan Philippe), there is a lesson to be learned here, and I can guarantee for a fact that you will ask yourselves some questions after you have seen this movie. It is the kind of movie that provokes conversations and debates after you have seen it. The writers have taken a risk in writing this, and sometimes it is necessary because it is the truth, and although we don't want to admit it, most of us DO IN FACT think like this. Some of us will relate, even if we don't want to. Very reminiscent of "Magnolia" in its shooting style, this movie will change the way you way you look at people in society. This is not just a well-written and directed movie, it is a basic lesson on humanity that everyone should see.

Crash is a definite must have for any movie collector. It is incredibly well thought out and every single part of the movie ties together nicely. A beautiful picture about the inevitable perpetuation of stereotyping in modern society.

It has been a long time since I have seen a movie and said "that was the best movie I have ever seen", but it was! Sandra Bullock is fantastic in this, but so is everyone else. An absolute must see! This is what movies should do,.... Move you!
