The movie “crash” deals with a series of intertwining events that involve many different parties. Their correlation and interrelations begin and end with the accidental automobile crash, throughout the story a sequence of crashes, both literal and metamorphic takes place. The film describes a police detective with a drug addicted mother and an apt to steal younger brother, two car thieves who are constantly theorizing on society and race ( one of which is the detectives younger brother), the white district attorney and his highly aggravated and pampered wife, a racist white veteran cop who disgusts his more optimistic younger partner, a successful Hollywood director and his wife who must deal with the racist cop, a Persian-immigrant father who buys a gun to protect his shop, a Hispanic locksmith and his young daughter who is afraid of bullets that the Persian shop owner later tries to direct on them. Throughout the movie they go through a series of allegories, three off the crashes I observed were acts of racism yielding inspiration that we can overcome the stereotypes and prejudices associated to help others in need. Another main point that the film emphasizes is that family comes first; the time spent with the ones you love is important and can never be replaced, so it is crucial to enjoy it while it lasts because we never know when it will end. The last point may be the most important one because it provides a blueprint for how we should treat others; treat others with the respect that you command for yourself. Respecting others without assumptions and accusations is the key to a better relationship with others.

Racism exist throughout almost every scene within the film, however one example from the movie stands out more than others. The characters of the white racist cop and the Hollywood director are most intriguing because of the direct bigotry that occurs and the lasting negative effect that it has on the victims. In the movie the cop uses his authority to wrongfully target and assault the director and his wife during a routine traffic stop. Later in the movie the same police officer is called to the scene of an automobile accident involving the director’s wife who notices him and is terrified; she refuses his acts of help but later receives him once he explains that her life is in danger, he has no intentions on causing harm. Although it took a near death experience for the cop to realize that his behavior was wrong and that he disrupted someone’s life, his actions were remorseful and he was ultimately able to put aside stereotypes to help another person.
The next point that I extracted from the film is that the time spent with your family is important and should never be taken for granted because life is short and tomorrow is not promised. In the movie the Los Angeles detective places work and his personal life before his family. There were times in the film where his mother demanded his presence for herself and his younger brother. On numerous accounts his mother asked him to search the streets for his younger brother, to give him guidance. He tried to accommodate them as much as he could but became consumed with his own life, in the end it was too late because his brother was found dead. His death was indirectly a result of his life style, but accidental in nature. The detective now blames himself, thinking that maybe if he reached him in time his life would be spared.

The last point in the film deals with the respect that we should give to others, if we model ourselves by treating others the way we want to be treated life would be an easier pill to swallow. In the film Ludacris’s character eventually learned to treat others as he wanted to be treated. Throughout the film he mistreated others without justification because he was angry at the world for the stereotypes that society has placed. Sandra Bullock’s character experienced a life changing event during the film; her character struggled with stereotypes and associations of racial backgrounds. She made assumptions and wrongful accusations that were offensive and hurtful. Later she realized that it was her narrow-minded behavior that caused her to be so angry. In the end, she came to rely on a woman of a different race for emotional support, realizing that her views were skewed and from then on she would begin to treat others with the respect that she commands for herself.
In conclusion, this film offers many different points many of which have to be dealt with on a personal level. The characters in the film were able to work through their differences and overcome racial, personal, and stereotypical barriers. If individuals in society today take a fraction of the morals learned in this movie, our world as we know it will be moving one step closer to equality.
