Oct 3rd 2012 2:31AM This is such a foolish idea that I must assume it is a joke.
Feb 28th 2006 4:31PM To say that Crash is a film about racism is like saying Brokeback Mountain is about gay cowboys---much too simplistic. There are fine shadings of character in the film, so I do not think all the characters are caricatures. Matt Dillon's character, alone, ably demonstrates that there is not just one dimension in the portrayal. In fact, most of the characters show conflicts and even contradictory impulses. And the presence of racism itself, as portrayed in the film, is not one dimensional. It is full of glimpses into the subtle shadings that color our perceptions of race, equality, and humanity. These glimpses invite us to search for the real answers that are not so simplistic. I loved Crash for that reason. In its exposition of social tensions, I found it nearly as compelling as Grand Canyon.
