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!
