Crash is kitsch.
I agree with this statement.
My worst movie of the decade is Gran Torino, I could not understand the praise it received. Rehashed, heavy handed, boring, portentous guff with terrible acting and the most laughably caricatured gang of bandana wearing Korean "punks" cinema has seen since they heyday of Ralph Macchio.
I don’t think the criticism for this movie comes from people who deny that racism still exists. It’s the way that this film treats racism – as an overbearing, totally unsubtle part of everybody that we just accept. That’s really not how a lot of racism plays out these days – it’s hidden, systematic, totally evil, and is not forgivable just because a cop did his fucking job.
or a film to truly be the worst it has to be done just well enough for your to get involved with it, but be done ineptly or inarticulately enough that its ultimately frustrating, enraging or otherwise bitter-making. (I feel like there's a word in German for the exact emotional response I'm looking for, but I don't really know of the precise word in English.)
