So, Crash is on Showcase tonight, so I thought I would watch it again and see if I actually got it this time - I watched it when it first came out, and felt like I was missing the point.
Well, I think that I’m still missing the point, unless the point is that this is an excuse for a bunch of people to have sex with each other in cars, on screen.
For some reason, I feel like there’s more to it than that, but I just don’t get it. Is it a commentary? And if so, what is it supposed to be saying? Is it a black comedy, and I don’t get the joke? Is it film noir and there’s some mystery to be solved?
Honestly, apart from the soft-core porn aspect, I’m not getting much else out of it.
So - am I the only person who saw this movie and didn’t get it? Can anyone shed some light on what the heck the point is. if there is one?
FWIW - I don’t hate the movie - it’s sort of interesting (although I could do without seeing Holly Hunter’s boobs). It just seems that with all that sex, and no bikinis, there must be something else going on.
