Lone­li­ness and frus­tra­tion per­vades this pow­er­ful drama about races and classes col­lid­ing in Los An­ge­les. Di­rec­tor Paul Hag­gis (writer of Mil­lion Dol­lar Baby) ties to­gether a mul­ti­strand nar­ra­tive pop­u­lated by a dense en­sem­ble cast that in­cludes San­dra Bul­lock, Don Chea­dle, Matt Dil­lon, Ryan Phillippe and Thandie New­ton. An im­pres­sive script sees sev­eral of the eth­ni­cally di­verse char­ac­ters – some vic­tims, some per­pe­tra­tors of racism – un­dergo some form of an epiphany that chal­lenges their prej­u­dices. In terms of mak­ing an im­pres­sion, Crash leaves a size­able dent – it sur­prised many by win­ning Best Pic­ture at the 2006 Os­cars.
