Dark Passage is so creatively unique, that it becomes hilarious. Not showing Bogart's face for nearly half the movie ? Filming from his shoes and subjective viewpoint. Then covering his face and having his mouth shut for almost the other half while healing from plastic surgery that made his character look like Humphrey Bogart ? That is crazy stuff, and it would never happen today.

And what can I say, the style of "Crash" just connected for me....and the pace of laughs mixed in with the "fables"....plus it dealt with big topics in a skillful way. IMO I did not see preachy-ness or did not feel tugs on the heartstrings that many talk about. Perhaps I just have no heart. lol

been a while since Mak has posted this much... I believe it is just so he can make a New Year's resolution to not post on LMFZ

You know I actually hadn't thought of that, but it's not a bad idea...
