Crash

I watched the film Crash last night. It is going into my list of favorite films ever. It's one of those films that haunts you, floating along in your subconscious, and coming to mind every once in a while.

Taking the idea of peoples lives going so fast they crash into each other, the film is full of cars and crashes too. The main characters that you think will guide you through the film unravel, and the more distasteful characters, turn out to have pain that makes you care for them.

I couldn't guess where the film was going, and the meander and intersection through these peoples lives, was profoundly moving. Issues of racism, illness, mental health, abuse, poverty, flow together, in something that was beautiful.

I'm off to buy the soundtrack.
