Crashing the Oscars

I just saw Crash Saturday night and was blown away by the film. It's a remarkable work of art - great writing and an astonishing ensemble cast producing a memorable set of characters who are interwoven in truly amazing fashion. So I'm just tickled to see it come away as the big winner at the Academy Awards. If you haven't seen the movie, get hold of the DVD and fix that hole. Wow.

I was also thrilled to see Ang Lee win as best director. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is one of my favorite movies, and I think his Hulk is a brilliant film that got sidetracked in the final reel, so his recognition for Brokeback Mountain is long delayed IMHO.

Good to see King Kong honored as the incredible sight and sound experience that it is. And years from now, of course, Crash will be the answer to the trivia question, "What movie won for Best Picture the year the legendary Serenity was released?"
