"Easily the strongest American film since 'Mystic River'." -- David Denby, The New Yorker

This compelling urban thriller tracks the volatile intersection of a multiethnic cast of characters struggling to overcome their fears as they careen in and out of one another's lives. In the gray area between black and white, victim and aggressor, during the next 36 hours, the will all collide.

Notes
Trivia: One of the things that inspired the movie was that Paul Haggis was carjacked himself. (more)

Goofs: Continuity: When Dorri is in the gun shop and asks for the money or the gun, the owner sets the gun directly on the glass counter. A few moments later when she storms out, she grabs the gun, which is in a case. (more)

Quotes:
[first lines]
Graham: It's the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something.
