I saw Crash last night. After winning an Academy Award it’s returned to theatres, which is great, because I missed it the first time around. It was really good, even if it does use my favorite comedic actor, Brendan Fraser, in an entirely serious role. The picture of humanity it creates is rather incredible.
It’s the kind of movie that everyone should watch in high school health or english class. Kind of like everyone should see “Stand and Deliver” in a math class sometime. Most movies you watch in school aren’t very good. Nonetheless, if you’re like me, you’re glad to be watching a movie in class because it’s far better than what typically goes on in a classroom. If nothing else, you can doze off more in peace than when the lights are on. Every once in a while, though, I’d get to watch a movie in school that was really good. Such a film was always a delightful break for the tedium of the 180 day grind. Teachers, add Crash to your list.
I recently discovered that another rather new acquaintance of mine is a vegetarian. It’s a full-fledged epidemic I tell you;). 88.
