      Audience Member Supposedly a dark comedy and an imaginative investigation of xenophobia, but its scattershot editing makes it hard to care about any of the characters. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Boring, though it gets better at the end. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Take a sixth form scriptwriter, the Hollyoaks film crew and as many day-time TV stars as you could get for free and you could still make a film ten times better than this load of wannabe socio-political wank. Shot in deep-focus (to hide the fact that it's filmed outside the Asda car park), BP comes over more like an omnibus of a TV soap opera and its sprinkling of well-known faces do nothing to lessen the effect. Its weak, condescending dramas like this that used to get all the UK film funding ten years ago. Thankfully, those days are long gone. Abysmal. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Add a review..Stunning debut film by Dizdar is a unique surprise for short-cuts-style-narrative, seen all trough the contradictions of different worlds of Eastern and Western Europe, war and peace, rality and hallucination and cellmates in each individable unit of the society. A warning for death of humanity and rebirth of genocide, it is a must see in our turbulant world today. . Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member at the risk of offending everyone on this page, i hated hated hated this movie. however, i have yet to see a 'social drama' that i have liked. this and other similar films always come off as being formulaic and preachy. i didnt particularly care about the characters or their individual problems and if that makes me an insensitive ass then so be it. that being said, crash is easily one of my least favorite movies of all time Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Writer/director Jasmin Dizdar follows the lives of everyday Londoners who are doing their best to navigate everyday chaos. From Balkan refugees to unexpected pregnancies, from unwanted boyfriends to unwanted legs, these ordinary people find their lives are inexplicably entwined. The outstanding ensemble cast includes Julian Firth, Danny Nussbaum, Charlotte Coleman, Steve Sweeney, Rosalind Ayres and Edward Jewesbury.
