Last night I finally watched it. Crash. The movie that came out last year. Very LA movie. Don't know if it would translate to other places, but probably to other cities at least.

It's been a long time since I found myself yelling out loud at the TV screen while watching something. And clinging, and grabbing my hands, and throwing them over my agape mouth. I couldn't help but react outwardly. It was that powerful. It's probably a blessing that I didn't see it in a movie theater, where the effect would have been overwhelming.

But for what it's worth, it was a great film, and I didn't find it too stereotypical - I mean, the characters seemed possibly real. And it's just so gut-wrenching. So see it, if you can handle that.

Normally when I like a movie I'm more than happy to see it again. I think "Crash" is the only movie I've ever thought was so good, and recommended to so many of my friends, but still have no desire to see again. I just found it so stressful. But excellent.

It was such a great movie. I totally reacted outwardly, even though I was in the theater. Although I didn't shout at the screen - which would have done had I been at home. But I still gasped and cried and cried some more.

Very intense.
