Now that's a good promo for Walk the Line. I'm looking forward to seeing it.
As for Crash, I don't believe that race relations are as bad as movies and media like to portray. There are militant blacks and media gluttons that make a living promoting the illusion that racial prejudice is a huge problem in this country. Crash is a work of fiction that was written by a far-left wing writer. I thought that is was a good movie. It wasn't preachy.
