Crash

Paul Haggis (the guy who penned Million Dollar Baby) writes and directs this rough, multi-storied crime drama about racial prejudice in modern-day Los Angeles. Among the intertwined stories are a district attorney and his wife who are carjacked by two black teens, two detectives involved in an interracial romance, a Hispanic locksmith who deals with a terrifying assault and a Middle Eastern family that feels oppressed by everyone around them. The cast is impressive (Sandra Bullock, Don Cheadle, Matt Dillon, Jennifer Esposito, Brendan Fraser, Thandie Newton, Ryan Phillippe and ... um, Tony Danza), but the "message" is hammered home a bit too hard. 100 minutes R.
