2004’s Crash can still be considered a great ensemble drama movie- Yes, it does recycle the “multiple stories somehow connecting” movie theme that was made popular by the likes of Pulp Fiction, but it’s still a solid film.
Starring Sandra Bullock, Matt Dillon, Brendan Fletcher and Michael Pena, Crash will be leaving Netflix June 5th, so here are some of the most powerful quotes that will likely convince you to give it another watch before it leavesFriday.
Graham: It’s the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We’re always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something.
Officer Ryan: You know, you don’t like me, that’s fine, I’m a prick, my father doesn’t deserve to suffer like this, he was a janitor, struggled his whole life, saved enough to start his own company, twenty three employees, all of them black, paid them equal wages when no one else was doing that, for thirty years he worked side by side with those men sweeping and carrying garbage, then the city council decides to give to minority owned companies preference to city contracts and overnight my father loses everything, his business, his home, his wife, everything, not once does he blame your people, now I’m not asking to help me, I’m asking you to do this small thing for a man who lost everything, so people like you can reap the benefits, and do you know what’s its going to cost you? Nothing, just a flick of your pen.
Jean: And this time, it would be really fucking great if you acted like you actually gave a shit.
Cameron: I mean, sooner or later, you gotta find out what it’s really like to be black.
Christine: Oh, fuck you man! Like you’d know! The closest you ever came to being black, Cameron, was watching “The Cosby Show”.
Cameron: Yeah, well, at least I wasn’t watching it with the rest of the equestrian team.
Lara: “I have it. He doesn’t have the impenetrable cloak.”
