Modern classic - Crash review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Absolutely stunning. I was totally captivated throughout the entire film by the brilliant performances all round and the gritty realism of the story. Even Brendan Fraser carried off his role well! Essential viewing.

Grand Canyon Decaffinated - Crash review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
08/03/2007

Maybe if it hadn't come lauded with praise and trophies I could have been more forgiving. However, this looks and feels like a limp-wristed remake of the seminal Grand canyon- a movie which expressed the same gulf of life experiences in people living geographically close but in wholly different worlds. Nothing in here matches the sheer horror of the scene in Grand Canyon where the mother realizes the bland insurance salesman at her door is trying to sell her a policy to cover the potential funeral expenses of her young child- on the basis that life is brief and brutal in her neighbourhood so you might as well prepare.

Characters lives cross over in to many pat and co-incidental ways, and too many fine actors get to do little but express a view point. We have characteristics, not characters.

Sandra Bullock is wasted, her epiphany almost an irrelevance. Don Cheadle's character is the most fleshed out but still suffers from an unsatisfying resolution of family issues. Brendan Fraser is amiable but comes across as a pallid retread of the complex and compromised character that Kevin Kline played in Grand Canyon.

Rent the better, earlier film- there's a terrific turn by Steve Martin who's character has become a 'not black enough' TV producer in this version.

The Best - Crash review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
20/10/2006

Well rare for me, this film is the best film I have seen in 2 years.

Brilliantly written and constantly engaging.

I found it to be emotionally educating and would recommend it to anyone who likes a thought provoking film.
