CRASH!



Of the nominated Oscar movies, Crash is the only one out on DVD. I saw this movie back before there was any talk of academy nominations or any other awards and it blew me away. The movie was so powerful that I had to watch it a second time before returning it to Netflix. Being that Crash was made with an interweaving of many stories, with many actors, it never occured to me that it would draw the attention of the academy awards with its unconventional style. A movie that speaks to prejudice and difficult decisions, the movie sings. I can't write reviews like Michael Parker does so well, so forgive this bumbling post. It's just to say that I'm happy to discover this morning that Crash was recognized as Best Picture!

You did just fine, Pris. I felt the same way watching Crash. And that is a great pic you've included with your post. It was a wonderful evening, for the most part.

My husband just told me he recorded the last part of the Oscars for me, so I'll see if he caught this part. I'm still miffed at myself that I didn't think ahead to record it all.

Out of the list Crash was the only one I seen, and I only gor it because you recommended it! I thought it was an amazing movie.

I know! I want to see Brokeback Mountain, too, but still feel Crash was the biggest breakthrough in this type of movie making it to an Academy award.
