Last night I saw “Crash” at the Alamo Village. I want to say thanks to the Village for giving me a discount on my Chicken Pesto pizza. I have no idea why it was only $5, but I appreciate it! You worked back into my graces after the Gardenburger incident. That pesto pizza es muy delicioso. Ah, si.
I really liked Crash. It isn’t very unique in topic matter or shooting style; in fact, it really reminded me of the now-defunct NBC show “Boomtown” and Soderbergh’s film “Traffic”. But I did enjoy the story it told us. The acting makes the film and the writing isn’t bad.
My biggest shock was that Sandra Bullock can act dramatically. Very well, I might add. She was very convincing as a society-wife who strongly distrusts minorities. If she is a favorite actress of yours, you should definitely see her show some versatility. All the acting is great, but her performance really stood out for me. Probably because I suffered through “Miss Congeniality 2” for my sister and was not expecting greatness.
I loved the soundtrack. I have no idea what style of music it was based on, but there are some Eastern influences.
