Crash

Not to be confused with a previous movie of the same title, this small budget film does touch a sensitive cord in America's multiracial society. We are transported to be a witness into the lives of a blend of different races all living in Los Angeles. Everything happens in a day time frame. The actors all gave their best performances. I couldn't help but wonder if there was going to be a Filipino character. Thankfully there wasn't one. It was a very realistic portrayal of what America really is. Not the land of milk and honey, certainly not for the people who are smuggled in as human cattle to start anew in such an unforgiving society. But overall, it just made me thankful that no matter what people say about the Philippines, I am still living in peace among Filipinos. I'm not a statistic in America's growing immigrant population.
