  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
With an opening scene and title like "Crash," I was expecting a movie revolving around a car accident. Boy, was I wrong! This film features an all-star cast (all of who give outstanding performances) and takes place in a single day. The group of different colored strangers from different wakes of life seem to have nothing at all in common, but their lives intersect through the one thing they all share

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced DVD picture exhibits a generally sharp picture, though some scenes appear somewhat blurry. Colors are generally well balanced, with natural fleshtones, but saturation tends to vary a bit. At times, hues can appear rich and vibrant, while other times darker scenes can appear slightly milky or unnatural. Some pixelization is noticed, but there is no bothersome edge enhancement. The source element is quite clean, with only slightly noticeable film grain at times. (Suzanne Hodges)

Solid, deep bass is the highlight of the Dolby
