The other night I saw the movie Crash with a friend and it was a strange movie experience. Parts of the movie were riveting, others were manipulative and boring. It was odd to enjoy and roll my eyes at a movie at regular intervals like a slowly revolving emergency light. It was obvious that they makers of this movie were trying to make a great movie about race relations in L.A. They made a movie that was interesting enough to not even consider turning off. At least they went for it, I guess that's saying something.
