Crash (Haggis, 2004)

Take one thinly drawn character.
Add thinly drawn character of a different race.
Add one disingenuous contrivance.
Sprinkle liberally with sanctimonious melodrama.
Repeat ad nauseum.
Underscore with ethereal new age music.

Crash is the kind of film Satan would make to give racial tolerance a bad name. I've already wasted two hours on this drivel ... I'm not wasting another minute.

Perfect. Any hate for this movie deserves to be published/brought forth. Let us continue the campaign!

I walked out on it. My review:

Yes, I reacted to this film similarly. The point where you walked out was the exact moment that I nearly turned the film off. However, you may be interested to know that those two characters' fates are not what you might expect. But you didn't miss much. The film gets worse from there.
