    Crash Analysis I think that it relates to my life by knowing that most people will respond in the attitude that they are being presented. He responded in that way because he was in the heat of the moment having an argument and couldn’t find a simpler way out so he went with what he thought was best. This could also relate to the couple where the women was molested by the cop and she was arguing with him and he responded in a manner that she presented him with. If he did something then they both

    always seem to be appearing. I ask myself all the time what really is a contact zone? A contact zone is not only the clash or emergence of contrasting cultural groups, but the thought that one sees himself/herself as better than the other.

    Crash The Movie

    Crash was about different kinds of social, multicultural differences and racial, giving an example of how these conducts affect our society. The behaviors observed, are prejudice and stereotyping. It was the causes of where all the events eradicate. Also the movie was about the race, family and etc. in Los Angeles. I think Matt Dillon’s character was embitter. He was very frustrated with his life and shortcomings that he used his job as a power base. But he abuses that power. Not that it was justified

    John “Crash” Coogan is the typical jock; he lives in Pennsylvania and is starting his second year of middle school as a 7th grader. I thought the main theme of the book is don’t judge a book by its cover. At least what most of us have in mind as a jock?

    In 2004 Paul Haggis directed the film Crash, a movie fundamentally about the effects of prejudice and bias on a group of Los Angeles natives including cops, robbers, and immigrants whose lives “crash” into one another’s.

The mishandle doesn't simply stop at the white American on Persian, it moves to Latino against Chinese, Chinese against black, black against white, white against Chinese, and so on. The film Crash is a good artistic
