Watched Crash last night. It was a movie, I had been meaning to watch for a long time, and I loved it. It was intense right from the beginning and I thought the script was really tight! I am a sucker for Multiple narratives,but even so, all the stories were brilliantly handled.
Was interesting to see Sandra Bullock in a “non emotionally stunted, unlucky in love, cutesy gal” role. Also loved the Locksmith and Iranian guy storyline.
Led to long conversation between me and J about race and it used to be a very touchy subject between us, but I can see how we are working through our attitudes.
Major breakthrough: J saying how bad he wants to learn Bengali. And that he doesn’t want to be left out, when we have a kid and the kid knows bengali. Cute no?
