22. It's a great film but about 15 years too late thematically.
Edited on Sun Mar-05-06 10:42 PM by Writer
In comparison to the greater cultural issues at play today, I think Crash falls flat thematically. Racism, etc. are always important issues, but there are larger and more important themes at play in the Best Picture pool this year. It fits better in 1990 and not 2005. I'm very disappointed that it won Best Picture. Versus Good Night and Good Luck? Brokeback Mountain?

It was a TERRIBLE choice. :(
