Music Monday: Crash into the Car Wash

Mrs. Kid and I watched Crash last night and I realized that it is really a re-make.
  • A day in various intertwined lives in Los Angeles
  • Racial tensions between blacks, whites, and hispanics
  • Tensions amongst blacks, some of whom are more militant and some of whom are trying to get along and make it in the white-man's world
  • Socio-ecomonic conflict between "haves" and "have-nots"
  • Musicians being actors
  • Cars
Crash is just a slightly more serious version of Car Wash (in which the recently-deceased George Carlin acted.)

Opening scene including Richard Pryor and intra-racial tension
