This is one of the best movies I have seen this year! It will really open your eyes on how society treats and stereotypes people of ALL races. At only 1 hr and 40 mins in length I wish it would have gone on longer so I could get to know all the interesting characters even better. This is one of those movies that you really need to pay attention to at all times because everyones lives are so interwoven into the plot.

Best suggestion I have is that you see it with someone because you will want to discuss afterwards.

One of the best movies on race relations since Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" in 1989. this is the story about seven strangers whom they are connected with a murder. There are plenty of strong acting from cast members. The film takes place in Los Angeles where culture and race clashed.

One of the best movies of the year. "Crash" is a must-see.

I agree with the other two "See Now" comments. The connections between the main characters may be a little too contrived, but the underlying depictions of racism, prejudice and bigotry seem very honest to me insofar as I have experienced them in our society. Good drama and good acting.

Too melodramatic for a "see now". Many of the characters border on charicatures.

This movie has a lot to say, and in getting everything off its chest, the viewer at times has to struggle to keep up and follow how the storylines of the ensemble cast are interwoven.

The traditional movie formula says to establish one or two main characters and have that character lead the audience through the movie. There is a beginning and an end, and very often, the main character experiences some sort of arc that provides the basis for the story. Not here.

You've been given access as an unlucky observer to the lives of a large cast of characters that probably will never make it into a tourism commercial for Los Angeles. Cultural angst, seething anger that just looks for a reason to explode from the surface, racism, and shallowness all make an appearance, with a few glimpses of humanity, heroism, and common sense thrown in to remind us of what everything could be if everyone just thought about their actions for a few minutes.

Crash is one of those movies that leave you uneasy after seeing it. It's not a happy movie, and you leave it feeling glad that you aren't those people, or are you?
