Bryan Lienesch86 - Most moviegoers will get hung up on the criminality of the BART officers' action, but the real message here is you just never know when it's your time.
Rob from GuysFilmQuest85 - It's disappointing that Crash got a Best Picture Oscar and this wasn't even nominated. Different years, but Fruitvale is far superior.
