Boy does this movie lose steam..


...after 40 minutes(which of were good) the only parts that aren't just tedious to watch are the S.J. Hawkins scenes, and the best one of those segmants had to be repeated later on. What a disappointment..

it seemed like each segment became less and less engaging. I liked the Japanese characters and their interactions.

Yep, same...the Japanese were the first 40-45 mins of the movie. That segment was a pleasure to watch. The rest, sadly, was a waste of effort.

lol..Crash is such a crap pretentious film. I haven't seen Babel but it's probably crap too. I hate those mainstream "meaningful" films. Most are pretentious and just plain redundant.

How interesting people think this. I thought each segment was equally great! Granted, the first was more traditional Jarmusch, but I thought the whole film was strangely charming!

Agreed. Far From Yokohama is where it's at.

The third segment was by far the most enjoyable - a fine adventure of a drinking spree and hilarious, too, mainly thanks to Buscemi in fantastic form.
