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.

  1. Maybe less in style than in subject and structure, it reminded me strongly of Grand Canyon. But crash was much better.

    Yeah, I hated “Grand Canyon”. It wanted to be something it was not, and was ultimately a disappointing movie. And it ruined “Lawyers drugs and money” for me. I think of that film whenever I hear that song. . .

    um, that’s “Lawyers, GUNS and Money”.
