I think the 'Crash' was a very good film, and i really enjoyed it. I think it was a very powerful film which illustrated many controversial issues in America today, such as racism, gun crime and immigration. It showed the racism that is underlying in everyone, and how different groups are given different prejudices and stereotypes for no reason. For example, the Latino locksmith who looked like a gang member because he was Latino and had a shave head, Sandra Bullock's character assumed he was a gang member and that he would bring his other gang members to her house and rob it, so she insisted to change the locks again. I think the film was good because it was shocking and was filled with tension, such as when the Persian man shot the Latinos daughter, but it was actually with blanks. I really liked how the film followed lots of different characters in their own lives, but then these all linked with each other to bring the film together at the end.
