Crash (2005) Review


Excellent
In Crash, a simple car accident forms an unyielding foundation for the complex exploration of race and prejudice. Thoroughly repulsive throughout, but incredibly thought provoking long after, Paul Haggis' breathtaking directorial debut succeeds in bringing to the forefront the behaviors that many people keep under their skin. And by thrusting these attitudes toward us with a highly calculated, reckless abandon, Haggis puts racism on the highest pedestal for our review.

There is no better place for this examination than the culturally diverse melting pot of modern-day Los Angeles. In just over 24 hours, Crash brings together people from all walks of life. Two philosophizing black men (Ludacris and Larenz Tate) steal the expensive SUV belonging to the white, L.A. District Attorney (Brendan Fraser), and his high-strung wife (Sandra Bullock). A similar vehicle belonging to a wealthy black television director (Terrence Howard) and his wife (Thandie Newton) is later pulled over by a racist cop (Matt Dillon) and his partner (Ryan Phillippe). Soon, many of these people get mixed up with a Latino locksmith (Michael Peña), a Persian storekeeper (Shaun Toub), and two ethnically diverse, dating police detectives (Don Cheadle and Jennifer Esposito).

Crash Producers Sue Cable Network


Paul Haggis Mark Harris Robert Moresco TOM NUNAN Cathy Schulman Don Cheadle Bob Yari

CRASH director/writer Paul Haggis and producers Mark Harris and Robert Moresco are suing American cable network Lifetime for claiming their new series ANGELA'S EYES was made by the "producers of Academy-Award winning movie Crash".
TOM NUNAN and Cathy Schulman, an executive producer and producer on Crash respectively, both serve as executive producers on crime drama Angela's Eyes, which has been advertised on TV, radio and billboards as from the same team behind the Oscar-winning racial drama.
Haggis, Harris and Moresco filed suit in Los Angeles last week (ends14JUL06), demanding the tagline is removed from the TV show's advertising.
Their lawyer RICHARD CHARNLEY says, "Lifetime is seeking to take advantage of the public's lack of understanding of what a producer is."
Even though six people, including the film's star Don Cheadle, produced the film, and four executive produced, only Paul Haggis and Schulman could be listed on the ballot for the Academy Awards' Best Picture category, which the movie picked up in March (06).
Charnley adds, "There were two Academy Award-winning producers for Crash - one was Paul, and the other was Cathy. Paul does not sponsor, endorse or promote Angela's Eyes in any way. The billboard suggests that Paul Haggis is somehow involved with Angela's Eyes."
Meanwhile, another Crash producer Bob Yari is suing the Producers Guild Of America (PGA) for denying him the chance the receive critical acclaim for his role in producing the movie.

One Eyed King Review


Bad
Making your first feature film ain't easy. Assemble a decent, if not strong, cast, as writer/director Robert Moresco has done with One Eyed King, and you're already ahead of the game. But rehash old plot lines, tired dialogue, and standard clichés, and a well-intentioned effort such as this one could jeopardize your chance at a second feature film.

How many more movies do we need about a rough neighborhood full of lifelong friends hopelessly turned to crime or worse? The enormous catalog of such movies might dissuade a filmmaker from making yet another, but here we have it. Again. Five Irish kids in NYC's Hell's Kitchen make an overemotional pact over some stolen rings on an anonymous rooftop. With teary music. And slow motion. In the film's first scene.
