Technically this is the first Monday of the semester, since MLK Day was last week, and we had a snow day the week before that. What will today’s random movie be? Will it be something light and cheerful for the start of the semester.
Hahaha, no. This weeks that random number generator gave me Crash, which is anything but a lighthearted romp. Here’s our summary:
A car accident brings together a group of strangers in Los Angeles. Crash takes a provocative, unflinching look at the complexities of racial tolerance in contemporary America.
Crash is definitely critically lauded, and it won a slew of awards, including the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay. You can check it out from Media Services as DVD 1736.
