Happy New Year

It was New Year's Eve and my wife and I had holed up for a nice long evening of movies and a countdown. The rundown of movies was Four Brothers, The 40 Year Old Virgin, and Crash. The first 2 films were okay, personally I had expected more from Four Brothers but was left confused. Fortunately all was redeemed by Crash.

In my opinion this is a must see movie. It provokes and shocks as the characters clash against each other from start to finish. Each individual portrayed reflects a deep dark part of us all where no one is safe from our racism, sexism, or corruption. Although vulgar throughout the acting, direction, and character development should rocket this film into contention for 'Best Picture' at the Academy Awards.

"It's the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something."
