Celebrity Interviews: http://www.bluntreview.com Blunterettes , I lead a truly strange life as film reviewer and celebrity interviewer Emily Blunt of BluntReview.com...this is true. In the a.m. it's off to interview a celeb, and by the afternoon, I am dining off The 99 Cent Store products, in the evening - it's gowns and petit fours among the "elite." Oh, this double-life that's mine. You wanna know what I'm up to? Sure, here you go.

Racism TAKE That!

There's a new film BluntReview.com will be ALL over in the next few weeks - but I wanted to give you a heads up. The film's called Crash. It's several stories that all interwine in someway...now before you tune out start thinkin', "Been there, seen that." Crash may be the most important film of our time. A film as Powerful as Hotel Rwanda, yet even more "recognizable" to the every guy walkin' around facing these issues - everyday.

Let's face it - 35 years after 'All in The Family' aired trying to ease racial tensions by making us see (through laughter)the root ignorance in it, the subject still brews just beneath the surface - all around us - every day. Of course now no one ever talks about it - it's not p. c. - but it's there and the mask is a happy face.

Writer/director Paul Haggis (Million Dollar Baby fame) brings one helluva cast to show humanity, while exposing realism in this smaller intimate film. It's not a lecture, it's just a great film, real-life stories, that really peek into things; things that have a powerful and important message, parlayed by the likes of Sandra Bullock (being real - no snorting), Matt Dillon, DON CHEADLE, Terrence Howard, Thandy Newton and so on. Each plays a "stereotype" of their visual heritage - but that steriotype is eventually spun on it's ear in a unique and honest way.

Crash will rock your soul it's so telling, truthful and smart. And maybe, just maybe, it will make a small difference in the way we look at each other - not always, not all of us - but when we quickly scan a person and blanket them with our own "mini-biography" before they've even opened their mouths.
I interviewed the cast and the chats will be up soon (translation: when I can get a minute to transcribe them) in the meantime got down May 6th to go see CRASH- and take everyone you know
