Why To Watch It - Apart from the fact that it had won 3 Oscars in the category - Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Writing, Original Screenplay, Best Achievement in Editing and getting nominated for 3 more categories - Best Achievement in Directing, Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Song and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role(Matt Dillon) this movie is brilliant in every sense of the way.

Fantastic performances by so many of its star cast, that even though its a multi-lead role movie, each one justifies its presence and holds on its own terrificly. The way link of different parallel stories culminates towards one single chain is shown in absolute brilliance. The amalgamation of different characters and stories will involve you right from the word go.

So sit back, get that bowl of popcorn, open a chilled can of coke/beer and enjoy the CRASH !
