Never expected Crash to upset a typical American Cowboy film in a voting process dominated by any movie made by Clint Eastwood and the types.
Crash and Syriana stand for what the new generation of movie making will be about.
Personal Stories that touch the common man’s life and are shot using realistic people. Syriana stands out in this respect. Mind blowing and absolutely stunning, seldom did a director only shoot what was abosultely necessary and chopped everything that makes a movie loose focus. One goof up in syriana was the use of Hindi rather than urdu for a pakistani prisoner, but what the hell, it’s one hell of a FILM!
