A curiously Canadian 'Crash'

From: Tim McIntyre, New Brunswick, Canada

I'm a long-time fan, and I wanted to weigh-in with a comment about "Crash." I'm not a big fan of the film, but neither am I in a position to judge its merits vis-a-vis the other films nominated (if it isn't on DVD and hasn't come to my local video store, then unfortunately I haven't seen it). What I remember about "Crash," though, was that it struck me as a very "Canadian" take on race relations in the USA: i.e., if only people were a little more polite to each other, we wouldn't have all this violence and strife. True, in many ways "Crash" a Hollywood actors' film and very L.A.-centric, but I think Haggis brought a definite Canadian touch to "Crash"'s "instructional liberalism" (thanks to Jim Emerson for that gem).
