May Film Discussion: Crash

Crash is the 2005 Best Picture Academy Award-winning drama film directed by Paul Haggis, and starring (amongst many others): Matt Dillon, Ryan Phillippe, Sandra Bullock, and Don Cheadle. A self-described "passion piece" for director Paul Haggis, th efilm was inspired by a real life incident where his Porsche was carjacked (mentioned on the DVD commentary track) outside a video store on Wilshire Boulevard in 1991. Motivated by depicting modern race relations in Los Angeles, Haggis undertook this film project with co-writer Bobby Moresco. For more information, see the Wikipedia article.
