May 6, 2005. A great movie was released on this date. Crash was written and directed by the brilliant Paul Haggis. It told the story of a bunch of very different Los Angelenos who find themselves coming into contact over two days. There are good and bad cops, thugs, police detectives, and solid citizens, all races and colors. Bad things happen, brilliantly.
It won three Oscars including Best Picture, and was nominated for three more.
