Top Movies of the Decade #50

50. Crash

crashThe number one movie on Netflix for the last bazillion years, people are watching, and talking about, and re-watching “Crash,”  even though it easily makes my list of  Great Movies I Watched Once and Never Want to See Again.   Personally, I find it to be  somewhat problematic as a realistic examination of race in America — racism exists, but people aren’t this honest and upfront about their prejudices– but marvel at the way it dives deep into human nature.  Pain, fear, and power drive the relationships in “Crash,”  and it’s the rare movie in which people do horrible things for completely understandable reasons.   What makes it great is that you can’t really hate anybody (well, maybe Sandra Bullock) because they’re all capable of doing really amazing things for no reason at all.  Such is the way of the world.   I dare you to watch this one more than once.
