Crash 2 Crash Reflection Crash , directed by Paul Harris, is an encouraging film that inspires its viewers to support multiculturalism and integration in society. However, to a certain extent, I did not like the movie. It was so depressing and realistic. I took InArt 110 last semester, and in that class, we learned about expressionistic and illusionistic films and Crash is definitely expressionistic. Expressionistic movies are movies that attack dominant ideology; they do not concentrate on what main stream America wants to see. Most movies (illusionistic) that feature blacks are movies like Rush Hour, Norbit and Big Mamma’s House . It is comfortable for America to see blacks playing in stereotypical roles because the poor, uneducated black American represents all black Americans. Even shows like My Wife and Kids are stereotypical and comfortable. The father is uneducated, but also comfortable. We do not have to see the family dealing with any racial issues that occur
