Crash (Movie)

I think a combination of too much hype and having experienced racial conflict all of my life (I grew up in South Africa) left me wanting more from the movie Crash by Paul Haggis. It is a good movie and worth watching but hardly the tour-de-force some people are describing it as. I was glad to see Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda) and Jennifer Esposito (Law & Order) who put in good performances. Matt Dillon was excellent and his character is full of genuine conflict. Otherwise Brendan Fraser and Sandra Bullock were flat and the others unremarkable.

I expect more from a racially powered movie than cliched characters.
