EP. 402.4 — Crash

Paul & Amy swerve into 2004’s Oscar-winning race-in-LA melodrama Crash! They take a close look at how the film’s attitudes on race and racism have aged, learn about the incident that happened to director Paul Haggis that inspired the film, and revisit the short-lived Crash TV series. Plus: Should Brokeback Mountain have won Best Picture instead?
