Why is the title of the film Crash and how does it represent the theme of the movie?
Crash shows that we should reanalyze the distinctions between “male” traits, such as decisiveness and aggression, and “female” traits, like submissiveness, non-aggression, and intuition. The movie portrays a Persian American shop owner who buys a handgun to protect his wife and his daughter, Dorri.

While the ostensible ‘message’ of the movie is that racism is bad, creating a character who is putatively innocent and untouched by racism, but only the victim of “reverse” discrimination policies such as affirmative action, undermines what could have been a progressive message film.
