Crash

Watched Crash yesterday. Despite being set in a contrived coccoon where everyone is racist and/or is affected by racism, its a truly great film. Still in my humble opinion - rated highly by a demography that includes most people who answer to the name 'Deppe' - the academy got it wrong. Brokeback Mountain is superior. Forget who won the prize, has this been a good year for movies or what? Munich, Brokeback, Syriana, Crash....and I'm yet to watch Capote and Good Night and Good Luck.

Is it the smell of blood after banging my nose against the wall? Or is it the excitement of going to thavarumane thats blanking everything else? Or as traaks famously is believed to have quoted I've "officially run out of things to say". Break time. Good night and good luck.

Guess what, I land home yesterday and there was my bro watching 'Crash'. Watched it twice already!
My best review for the movie- One of those very few recent flicks, which keeps me glued to the screen.

Crash - awesome movie. In a weird way, I could relate to the movie. Brokeback's next on the list of movies to watch.

BTW, happy homecoming! :)
