I think it's disappointing when I feel like I should like a film, but I don't anyway. Especially since I think the film was largely successful in what it was attempting to do (it made me think, it affected my emotions.) The thing is, Haggis writes in stereotypes. He always has. I find it charming in due South, because it's a charming show. But when you're writing in stereotypes and you're showing the darker side of life, it doesn't quite work for me. Okay, sure, he's always trying to break the stereotypes whilst he's depicting them, but it still doesn't work for me.
Perhaps I just wasn't in the mood for the kind of film Crash is.
