  •  Thanks to the diarist (none)
    for connecting this episode to "Crash."  Very apropos.  That was one racially offensive film.  And not very good as film to boot.  Some day, Hollywood will be embarrassed about that choice.

    •  Really? (none)
      Not to be dense or insensitive, but I would like to either you or the diarist to explain to me why "Crash" was offensive. I know it had some pretty raw scenes, but I thought it was supposed to have a anti-racism message.

      Still, I have to agree that it wasn't deserving of Best Picture. A little too heavy handed for my taste. Although parts were gripping.

      Again, sorry for being dense. I ask to learn.
