Crash

Stop.

Drop what you're doing, and roll over to the nearest cinema. Don't buy a ticket for Kingdom of Heaven, that's sure to be a fun ride, but you can always do that later. If you're not yet 17, put on a fake mustache, or bat your eyes at the guy in the box office, as appropriate. Whatever you have to do, take two hours out of your life and see the movie Crash.

Last night Sandra Bullock was on the Tonight Show and I saw a clip. I was instantly hooked. Not because she's hot; because this movie takes American taboo and artfully but forcefully rips its shell off to reveal raw humanity.

You will not be disappointed.

  1. So have you seen it yet? You can't judge a movie by its clip. =)

  2. Maybe I need to work on this 'kom-yoon-ee-kay-shun' thingie a bit more. I haven't been met with much success of late.

  3. I wouldn't see a film just because an actress is hot. I think that's silly. The number one reason to see a film should be for its redeeming value as a commentary on the issues of the present day.

    Now, Tony Danza, that's another story.

  4. Saw it this weekend. It's probably one of the top five best movies I've ever seen.

    Thanks for the recommendation.
