Critically Acclaimed: Crash and The Glass Shield

When people talk about the worst Best Picture winners of all time, they're usually talking about CRASH. This all-star "hyperlink" movie about racial tensions in Los Angeles has big melodramatic moments and lots and lots of speeches, but does it offer anything else? And why is it the perfect double feature with Charles Burnett's THE GLASS SHIELD, an acclaimed but rarely-discussed dramatic thriller about police corruption, starring Ice Cube? Plus, film critics William Bibbiani offer their predictions for the Academy Awards, and review the new releases ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U, DONNYBROOK and RUBEN BRANDT, COLLECTOR!
