The Crash (2004) is a highly recommended masterpiece, directed by the writer of Million Dollar Baby, Paul Haggis. Crash is a melodramatic and realistic film, about the differences between people, on the trivial issue of skin color, which is one of the main reasons causing conflicts among mankind. It deals with how cruelly people are obsessed with racism, and the impacts it make on their lives.
The most important emotional aspect of the film is, the people who are hated the most by other race, are the ones who actually rescue the haters from crisis and save their very lives. An accident collides all of their lives and make them realize their mistakes and redeem their sins. Its ensemble cast, mainly comprises of Don Cheadle, Sandra Bullock, and Thandie Newton. The film won three Oscars in 2005, for best picture, writing/original screenplay, and editing.
